      My note on this opponent is that he squeezes very loosely. I have seem him do it with AJ as well as with total trash. My 4bet thus isn't worthy of discussion; the question is about calling his shove here.

      It all comes down to whether he shoves with AK or not. Is it something you can only find out about a player after you know him well? Or are there actually some good indicators to estimate this?

      In case I assume he would rarely shove AK in that spot, but only QQ+, this turns into an easy fold, right?

      Hey!

      We should never 4b/f JJ :D If we decide to 4b JJ, it is with the intention of going broke, as we have already invested too much to fold such a strong hand.

      I don't really like "you should never" arguments in poker :rolleyes: . There are people on NL50 who 3bet very lightly, but only shove KK+ preflop and just calling the 4bet with AK and some other hands (pairs/scs) if the action was aggressive enough. What would be the reason to go broke against this kind of player with a hand that's crushed by his range?
