      Hi!
      CO was a bit aggro for a Tag but he also did not 3bet much in position. So I assume he is pretty full of value 3betting here. He could do it with JJ+,AQ+ preflop. We already got some history and I 4bet him.

      Postflop it's also about the sizings. We only have to be scared of an Ace, so the sizing does not need to be big right? When he has AQ+ he can level himself into calling at least 2 streets because he has "the odds", whereas only an Ace helps him.

      On The River there is probably nothing worse that bets out against us. He would probably cbh JJ-QQ and only bets Ax (when he is polarized he can also have A2s-A5s in this spot. Right?

      Hi M,

      If he is only full of value 3bets and then calls your 4bet, his range there is like JJ+ only so I would not make small sizings. I would make small sizings here only if he is wide and fishy but when you describe him as a tight player that would have many value 3bets here only, I don't like getting fancy.

      Now, given the stats I see, he will not have only value 3bets, depends what you have in positional 3bets.

      As played, shove river imo.. pairs should not fold if he thinks your 4bet range is polarised and would barrel weak.

      Hm, really? I don't see any chance that somebody would call there with JJ and QQ. I mean what would you do when being in his shoes? The other way around I would not assume that he is turning those hands into a bluff when we check to him.

      Makes no sense to call them preflop if you don't call down on such a board so either way he is making big mistakes.
