Sorry, this hand was deleted by its owner

Villain: 17/17/6 over 14 hands

Can we ever cold call 4-bet IP here 150bb deep? I just saw that my re-raise was called by SB, so BBs 4-bet must be pretty *****d here.

I think it's fine. I would prefer that the villain was a bit deeper, say $3.60 or more (0.24 to call x 15 = $3.60) but I still think the villain would be raising here with a decent amount of hands IMO. Sample size is small but we can already see that he is "raising" his whole range, he's yet to cold call. I would play with a lot of caution PostF. However, even when an A flops I would still be inclined to call at least 2 streets. You can also give this villain a tighter range (JJ+,AQs+,ATo+) and you will still only be a about 45% under dog preflop and you'll have position. SO I LIKE YOUR OVERALL PLAY!

NOTE: If you miss the flop, FOLD, don't FLOAT!

Given stacksizes, odds and positional advantage I think we can call profitably with AQs, but we have to be very cautious with top pair type hands we flop here. Also we have to assume SB will be joining along, but since we are suited we have some great multiway potential too. Don't see a problem with calling pre (as long as you are able to assess postflop situations well multiway given the strong range of BB).
