Villain: 23/18/0 (22 Hands)

I never know how far I should go when I flop such a strong but vulnerable hand. My intention on the flop was to try and get all the money while my hand was likely still good with only T9 beating me. I suppose that he might just flat call with JJ or QQ but I think this is relatively unlikely.

When villain 4bet shoves, should I seriously consider folding? I didn't think so because even if he had T9, I still had considerable equity to catch a boat or quads.

Hi spand,

I don't rule out JJ or QQ, but it's probably not enough to fold. If we think he defends with T9 then we have to include J8s, QJ, KT(especially with diamonds), QdXd and a few weird preflop slowplays with KK/AA.
