Played this this way because of a recent Live training session, but it was for a tourney, not a cash game. Really wasn't sure this was the best way to play here.

Hi Band,

I would 4b to about $1.50 here. What you were probably picking up from the mtt training revolved around commitment, but here we are 123bb effective with the 3-bettor, and the OR also starts with 67 bb's so neither are committed yet. Jamming all in is too large an overbet, making it likely we won't get called by worse hands very often.

Of course reads can change that, but you haven't provided any.

Yea, I knew I was missing details about that! lol. I only had 3 hands against this player (on zoom) so there really were no reads. I also made the mistake of almost discounting him. I was more focused on the 3 bettor.

Thanks again.
