Hi sapines1001!

With AA on the button, I get a min-raise, then a 3-bet to 150. I'm definitely going to 4-bet here and the key is the sizing. 3X the previous bet is 450, but that bet would basically pot-commit me, so since I'm going to be pot-committed and can't fold, I'm 4-bet shoving before the opp can see a card that can beat me.

Hope this helps and good luck at the tables.
