      Villain is 25/19/2 with 3-bet 6%. Im 150 bb deep so Im not sure if stacking off pre is +EV in this spot. He dont look on guy who 5-bet light. My first thought is only AA-KK but mayby also AK and QQ. Nevermind.

      I need 38% equity and against range (QQ+, AK) I have 39 so its breakeven.

      So my question is what do u do in situtation like this ?
      And what range do u put him on ?

      first of all: Why do you 4-bet so small after coldcall of BB?
      Make it 21$ and fold to a reraise. He has there only KK/AA 99% of the time.
      I'd just call after BB completes, because BU 3-bets an UTG-raiser which shows normally a lot of strength.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      well you can´t just 4-bet and then decide that you´re against AA/KK and fold your hand.
      If you afraid that then call pf and if you flop A then you have easy all-in, if you flop K, then it is a littlebit difficult, but even then I think c/c flop and maybe c/rai turn is reasonable line in big pot.
      I would mostly not fold AK after 4-betting, so if he 5-bets I´m shoving
      Sometimes you´re flipping, sometimes he´d fold/call AK and some times you´re against KK/AA, but I would not turn AK into bluff that point
