      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (5 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $25.00
      SB:
      $25.80
      BB (Hero):
      $25.35
      MP3:
      $25.00
      CO:
      $25.00


      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, Q.
      3 folds, SB raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, SB raises to $6.35, Hero raises to $25.60


      Villain:
      Hands: 5.5k
      VPIP: 24
      PFR: 21
      STL: 42
      AF: 3.4
      3BET: 9.0
      4bet range: 3.2% And 4BET: 16%


      What do you think about my 5bet shove?
      I guess I don't beat anything from 3.2% 4BET range.
      That would be about AKs, QQ+ to 5bet shove profitably, right?
      5% could be AKo, but AQo should be somewhere about 9%, I think.


      This is my guess about ranges,
      although I don't know, how does this guy plays "Blind battles".
      Maybe he thinks - "ATo+, TT+ are good enough for blind battles!!!"

      Does it matter that this is a "Blind battle"
      or should I just push when I'm ahead by percentages of 4BET?


      Thanks!

      AQ is in his range. Try to use Equilator to get idea what hands are included in different ranges.

      U said that AQ is included in 9% range. Yeah but not just Q even TT,JJ,KQ,KQs maybe even QJs and more....i am at work and i dont have eqilator here but range of 9% include many many more hand worse than AQ is.


      So as played i think that there is not much wrong with 5 betting AQ in that spot. He could easily just try to bluff you if you have wide 3bet range also nad that image.

      As this is decent player i think he knows exactly how you play so u must consider about how is your image. As i said if you 3 bet a lot and you dont scare to be aggressive than u could easily shove that hand.

      On the other hand if you re-steal blinds just with monster hands of course he know that and your shove here could not be profitable.


      That is my opinion, hope that it is not the worst ever:)

      It depends a lot how often you think he is capable there 4-bet bluffing
      I think once you 3-bet and he is aggressive I like your shove. he has there bluffs enough times to make shove profitable and he can go all-in as light as 88+, AQ+
