SB - VPIP: 25, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.0, Hands: 28
BB - VPIP: 29, PFR: 23, 3B: 11, AF: 2.6, Hands: 220

BB is a good aggressive reg.

I think given a fish calls from the SB, it's a great spot for the BB to squeeze and pick up the dead money.

Given this, I think our 4b will get quite a lot of folds. We also have the A blocker which removes part of his 5b value shove range.

Thoughts? Would you guys fold or call instead?

you need here 3bet BY position stats and fold to 4bet stats. I don't mind bluffing myself here

I think it would be a good spot, if it wasn't for his 3bet size, for me it looks like a value 3bet since he is deep vs you, and also makes it a bit expensive 4bet bluff.

Hi birdayy,

To this large sizing my default play is to fold. I suspect he's going to show up with a value hand a lot here trying to isolate the fish in the SB and knowing if he doesn't make a very large sizing you will call in position pretty wide this deep and with the prospect of the fish overcalling.

I don't mind 4-betting here once in a while, to about 7.50, and folding to a 5b obviously, but am generally saving it for when the squeezer is expecting 2 folds, not when he's expecting a fish to call him.
