      Just ignore Villain2 with his 30bb, he's not really important, if it was HU we would gladly get it in against him. Your main problem is Villain 1. If he's min3betting often, we're ahead of them both and we should 4-bet with the intention of calling it off. If he's rarely min3betting, he probably has us flipping/far behind a lot, which coupled with Villain 2 showing up with random Ax/Kx hands that still have outs against us, make us going broke in that spot very dicey to say the least, maybe even bad.

      If you don't know Villain 1 there is no great line, either you risk making a very weak fold, or you risk making a very wrong 4-bet/call. The only way you can decide better is to learn more about your villains, or to make broad assumptions about the average player out there at microstakes, which in my experience is very hard to do against min3bets preflop until you have a good enough sample to make out a frequency. If he min3bet once in 200 hands run away, if he did it twice in the last orbit be happy to 4-bet. In between, flip a coin or do what you're most comfortable with.

      Hope it helps.
