      Why did you shove directly instead of 4betting?

      Against this guy, who has been 3betting a lot, and seems like a loose fish, I like the 4b, but I wouldn't shove directly. I'd make a big 4b to something like $1.6. If you shove, you give him a chance to get away with stuff like AQ, KQ, AJ, KJ, 88, 99, TT.
      He's stacking off QQ+, AK regardless of our play, so why not give him a chance to play with a wider range, so that we have even greater equity?

      Once you 4b, you obviously can't fold to a push.
