      m4bet OOP looks very scary. I was a bit lost here. Fold, call, 5bet?

      I thought about checking behind here, but i don't want to see a A or K, so i did bet and would have called a shove.

      BB bets $14.45 (AI), Hero calls $13.80 (AI),

      Here i think i have to call. He could do this with JJ or TT as well as with QQ+.


      Any other way to play the hand?
