Ready to cash in, clicked sit-out next bb. I get AA whooo are you calling my 4-bet shove Mr Shorty? Yes...

These moments really put me on tilt.

So I need to calm down and think was that a good call?

Or should I have made a smaller 4b to the click back 3b as shoving was just waving a red rag at a maniac bull?

Had no reads so very angry now. Why didn't I just click sit-out next hand.

Thats a massive 4b.

I'd make it $1 vs his 3b and go from there.

Hi ForrestFive

You lost 60bbs with AA, big deal. Don't be results oriented, it will drive you mad
Vs a 3bet I usually take a standard 22bb 4bet to balance between re-steals and value raises. Since villain went for a min 3bet Id go ahead and just make it 3x. I don't want to put too much money out there that it scares our opponent but I also want to build the pot to a size where I can get the rest of their stack by the river. Shoving there is too big and we force our opponent to have a hand to call us... or maybe not
