      Is it better to go broke pf than to see if he has me beat on the flop? I fold flop because I only beat JJ and a bluff imo

      Imo it is 4-bet/call pf.
      I like your lead, but shove on the flop.
      He could easily do that with random hand, since your line doesn´t make any sense and it is often bluff or weak hand

      1- even if it could be AA, KK?
      2- what do i beat?
      3- why is it often a bluff? it usually is a monster imo. when I start putting them on bluffs I tend to lose a lot of money.

      1) It doesn't matter what it "could" be, he has a range of hands and AA and KK are well in there, the question is how many other hands is he 3betting in this spot.

      Since i wouldn't expect a 13/9 to get crazy with his 3bets i'd expect his range to be {KK+,AK}.
      Since you got 40% equity vs this range i'd fold to his 3bet.
      You have invested <5% of your money, there is no reason to get the rest in as an underdog - problem with 4betting is, that once you do it you are commited to call off the rest of your stack if he shoves since you got 40% equity.

      Btw never call 3bets OOP 100BB deep.
