      If you want to 4bet him make it bigger like 1,3$-1,4$ and if he shoves you have to call. He's quite loose and quite aggressive so I think it's an option.

      Otherwise you may call his min3bet and continue if you hit.

      At least that's what I think is right after some judges' opinions on similiar hands of mine :) . Good luck.

      Once you 4-bet and face 5-bet it sucks but I think you have to get the money all-in.
      NL 5 players sometimes do unreasonable things and you can see there sometimes like AJ or 65s which they want to gamble.
      Against QQ and lower hands you´re flipping and can´t put player always on AA or KK ot fold AK.
