FT stuff: weird "4bet/bluff" by Hero

Hi guys, lets read your thoughts on this FT play

** Villain is a good reg
** Recent history in the FT so far: i have been really active, open raising a lot and harassing villains...like 2-3 orbits ago this same villain 3bet/restole my steal from BTN and i folded

Ok, now the hand:

I dont know why Hand History Converter doesnt work lets do it like this (bad thing shows result)

1.- Is the 4bet a good idea? I think it puts a lot of pressure on him; also i block his KK QQ AQ AK

2.- If itīs good...what about the size? I thought i really didnt have to bet that much to pressure him...

I like the 4b there but I would size up. You're actually giving him good odds to call and still retain most if his stack. Plus, if he 5b shoves are you folding?

I'd rather make a large enough 4b that clearly leverages his entire stack and makes it obvious we're not folding.

Yeah i agree with you and Darth Maul: stack sizes are awkward to play tricks like this...but itīs ok, itīs all about trying to learn ICM and different situations that arise

BTW if villain 5 bets me his range should be ultra strong (QQ+ AKo+) so...i fold

better to spew in a 5 $ MTT than in a 1000 $ MTT (althought probably never playing one of this )

Thanks, as always, for your thoughts

Re: FT stuff: weird "4bet/bluff" by Hero

All of our options seem good here, except folding. Flatting is fine. Shoving seems fine given the ICM pressure villain is under, can villain even call off with JJ or AK here. 4bet small/folding also seems fine for the same reasons.

Its just a matter of which is best. I would probably flat and try to leverage my position advantage and villain's ICM pressure postflop.
