      If I call his 4bet we are both commited so I can just fold or ship it here and I think I have enough equity to call his all-in bet so I'm shiping myself. Am I wrong here?

      You indeed have enough equity to call it off even against a tight { two pairs + sets } range, so this can't be minus ev. You have no fold equity on a shove however.

      Since villain will think he's committed probably even on 4th diamond turns, I'm not sure you really benefit from going broke right on the flop when you're not committed and you likely could make perfect decisions on the turn and he can't. Basically you get to fold when you're behind and he doesn't get to fold when you do improve to beat him, unless he's tight/good enough to recognize his top two airs are no good, which people min3bet at nl4 usually aren't.

      Hope it helps.
