      both villain is unknown. Utg 18/12, 67hs; BU 22/15 73 hands. 13% 3b so far
      I guess flop is pretty standard?
      we could flat, but then utg gets great odds to draw?

      Thanks

      Since 4b looks that strong, that players might easily fold there QQ-TT and AK I´d likely 4b from SB to 14$. If someone shoves I´d have to call. Postflop is play. Call looks also quite strong and better shove on the flop. if they have anything I think they don´t fold tp or draws

      Why check/push is better than bet/push (call push) here?

      you give players to c-bet with air, as if you lead out they would very rarely bluffraise you. Also with Ad you don´t really afraid any turn card that you should bet yourself for protection

      Personally i prefer a fold or 4-bet preflop. By calling you let UTG 4-bet over you which sucks against an unknown and you probably have to call it off at that point or fold if BU stacks off as well. And you miss the flop way to often and even when you hit a K if he did have KK+ pre your still pretty much crushed.

      Like Kaitz said your 4-bet in this spot looks super strong and they can easily fold QQ and AK so you pick up a lot of money that way.

      Fold also isn't that bad since you didn't invest anything in the pot and with no reads you have no idea of what their stack off ranges are and they do seem to be on the nitty side even tho you don't have much stats on them.
