      1) I'm intending to fold to a 5 bet/shove.
      a) Does my 4 bet sizing give this away?
      b) What sizing would you suggest.

      2) Is this a reasonable 4 bet in the first place b v b given the villian has 3 bet from bb 1 out of 5 to a sb open?

      Thankyou.

      Hi.

      1. Don't use hands that are strong enough to call 3bets, to use as 4-bet bluffs
      a. No - If you do this with your entire range, you will be balanced
      b. It's fine

      2. Doesn't tell us much, but by default you should be opening wider in the SB, and thus it can be assumed that most players playing in the BB will be 3-betting much wider than in other positions.

      Thanks.
