MP2    51.64%  50.11%   1.53% { JJ+, AQs+, AKo }
MP3    48.36%  46.83%   1.53% { QQ }

if the opponent see that I isolate a limper, that means that he is not 3betting light ? wright ?
based on the stats I have on my opponent, and the sample size of the stats how do you play in this spot ?
I think it is fold preflop as my equity calculation shows

If I want to play low variance poker, should I fold preflop in this spot to the 3bet ?

Hello,

First of all, I want to ask you to post just one hand in a single thread. Thanks in advance.

To the hands - both stack offs are fine.

#1 - just ship it preflop, rather than 4bet 40bb. When we 4bet this much we don't really are going to fold at all, so there's no point in doing that.

#2 - Against a rather unknown opponent stacking off is better than folding.

Best,
Plamen
