Hey dirteh!

To start off, I think I'd 3bet bigger 2.11-2.25. Pretty "non-standard" 4bet here, basically a clickback. I think with the depth of money remaining I don't favor a shove. When we shove here we need 43% equity when the money goes in and putting in 22.83$ is way above leverage point imo and we will get called much tighter. If they call with QQ+, AK we have 40% equity which is lower than the pot odds. Clearly, folding is out of the question which leaves us with raising to a point where we get 40% in pot odds when they shove, or we can call. I think I like a call here because any raised amount will shut down their bluffs and it's unlikely we will see a crazy 5bet/6bet game.

EDIT: I think our opponent's bet size can make us do one of two mistakes: either raise/shove as a bluff or thin value. What I'm trying to say is the least route of mistake would be to call. Hope, I managed to make myself clear

Double EDIT: We can call with T9o here given the odds I think. So by depolarizing our range and calling with all our good hands too then we become unpredictable and harder to play against. I should have left this to Gareth :P
