Villain is very agressive with AF of 8.3, is 22/19/6.1 with fold to 3b of 55%, call 3b 9% and 4bet of 63% over 275 hands. Is 4b/stacking QQ/AK profitable against him? With no read, am I 3b-folding QQ/AK in this spot as a lot of people will flat AK and QQ and only ship their KK and AA?

I thought I entered a proper title looks like I didn't

Don't 3-bet if you're not comfortable stacking off. Personally, I'm always getting it in with QQ vs this guy, or even an unknown given the positions. In SB vs MP, my stack off range is QQ+/AKs and I balance that range with a few light 3-bets (e.g. Axs). If villain is capable of 4-betting light, you can 5-bet shove QQ for value.

Bracelet Winner

Hi all,

I agree, given this villains stat line a 3B for value and subsequent stack off to his 4b is fully in order here.
