      Villain was new on the table but we had some action with him already.
      PF i thougth he was squeezing so i decided to 4bet.
      Was it good idea? What about bet sizes? Does hes x2,5 3bet should indicate something for me? What about my 4bet size?
      Thanks

      The 4 bet is too small for me, I would make it 4,5$ clearly indicating that you want to play for stacks and forcing him to fold JJ, QQ and AK. You have to call a shove then.

      As played you can't continue imo on the flop.

      If you 4bet to $4.50 thats almost half your stack in the pot already.

      If flop doesn't hit you then it is hard to call a shove IP. Probably best to just call and re-evaluate on flop.

      What I've meant is that you have to call a shove preflop.

      What if villian flats preflop and you don't hit anything on the flop, then you have to fold on the flop like this hand if villian makes a pot sized bet into you, losing half your stack.

      hi
      4 bet biger . you dont wanna give him odds to call with random hands and see a flop
      i would make it 4.2
      as played i muck it too
      if you call you are comited
      if you shove he may think that is comited and will call with any pair probably
