    Hi Bogdan,

    just wanted to thank you for this great series, not only helped me leakfinding in general, but the mathematical approach of hand analysis is also something i can learn a lot from.

    I have also a question regarding the AJs hand at 43:40. You say that after the squeeze 4betting would be better than calling. But would it be 4bet/call or 4bet/fold, and what size would you choose? I feel that stacking off w/AJs would be a bit of an overplay even against an aggro squeezer, but 4bet bluff is also problematic because after the squeezer hero should put more of his stack in as a 4bet.
    So all in all, would it be a 4bet/call or 4bet/fold, and how big would you size it?

    Hi pcfmcc02,

    Apologies for the delayed reply. I didn't think I would get questions so long after the video was posted but from now on I'll make sure to check more frequently (I noticed a lot of my older videos got new questions).

    It would normally be a 4bet/fold unless there are some "crazy" dynamics or we have seen this player spazz out.

    It is true that when you are squeezed your 4-bets will generally be bigger however, with a lot of players, you can get away with smaller 4-bets since they rarely call a 4-bet and rarely shove w/o a hand.

    In this case when he 3-bets 13BBs, I would make it no more than 28-29 BBs with my entire range (value or bluffs).

    Let's assume we make it 28, that leaves us with 72 behind. Let's further assume that he shoves over us. That means we get roughly 35% pot odds.

    Against a range like JJ+, AK we only have about 29.5% equity. Add in AQ and TT and we go up to almost 32%. Only if we add AJs, KQs, 99, 88 we go up to 37%. So as you can see we can't call a shove unless the proper dynamics and/or player are present.
