Pretty sure I played this as horrible as possible.

Villain is unknown.

We're 181bb deep. I was actually really close to folding this preflop. I think I picked the worse possible option by calling. Should we stack off PF this deep? Villain just looks too strong here IMO.

Kinda gross spot.

Given his squeeze was so small I agree that we should be 4betting pre.

When he comes over the top here we are up against a pretty tight range.

I'd probably call and stack off any non A flop.

birdaay, what do you think about betting the river to get the opponent of a hand like KK, QQ?

Well i'd be betting for value, not as a bluff. I think any Ax would be betting the turn, so I think it's fine to bet ~$8-10.

Would 4-bet bigger preflop as you guys are so deep and you're giving villain a great price to see a flop IP with proper implied odds against your hand.

I don't mind your betting line up until river, I guess villain should either have been bluffing pre or will have KK/AA very very often in which case we can't really get any more value from worse here unless he takes a stab with his bluffs.
