4bet against lags... our strength is early streets and u dont let sb in tho he is a bad player... just remember more cards are then playing against u... prem pairs mw pot dont fair well.. so yeah raise.
And just shove flops then. Just put pressure on em and play your game.
But as played do you really think in a mw pot hes leading into u with Jx ... he would act on flop.
So this looks strong... i think u should fold turn it seems tight but it looks strong. SB is still there as well.
In mw pot remember pairs just dont fair as well.
I do like the shove instead of calling...but yeh occassoonally he will have a set of jacks

Could 4-bet pre but I think you played it fine.

Postflop I think you played it fine as well.
Not sure how comfortable u are with 4 betting preflop there, but 6 max I think that would be a standard play against a LAG.
