      saw flop

      MP ($38)
      played 44/15

      Gerv (CO) ($53.30)
      Button ($24.10)

      Preflop: Gerv is CO with 5, 5
      1 fold, MP bets $1.50, Gerv calls $1.50, Button calls $1.50, 1 fold, BB raises to $6.5, 1 fold, Gerv raises to $15.00 total, 1 fold, BB raises $58.45 (All-In)

      I decided to 4bet his squeeze because I think he does this with a wide range + he was very active on the tables.

      I didn't thought of my lines as I was calling (indicating a non-3bet hand unless I level myself by thinking that BB squeezes often which I did't had the intention of).

      Now he quickly shoved all-in and I do think my timing wasn't perfect because I coldcalled pre.

      Should I just fold to his 3bet or can I even consider calling (which I found at thát time weak)

      so to call you need 34,86% equity--- I think its hard to come up with realistic ranges that dont give you that much equity
      for example:
      AK,66-AA,AQ,AJ --- 35,35%
      AK,TT-AA,AQ --- 37,1%

      AK,TT-AA --- 31,37%
      AK,88-AA,AQ --- 34,18%

      so the more broadway hands you think he shoves, the more inclined you should be to call. If you see more small pairs in his range, its a fold.

      Personally I think that 4-betting there without the intention of snapping him off if he does push is not good. If you want to make a stand there go ahead and call, if not go ahead and just fold pre

      I wouldn´t turn pair into bluff, so if you 4-bet you have to call shove. You could also shove directly hoping he´d fold 88-99
      I´d fold myself 55 or call ip and play postflop
