      The guy on the BU was 28/25 with a 3bet stat of 7.4 over 127 hands. I decided I didn't need to 4bet for protection because the original 3bet was so huge but what do you think?

      Don't call 36% of your stack pre and then fold to shove. You get immediate 2.2:1 an SB has quite a wide range there imo. But shoving yourself there is better since he's calling anyway and you shouldn't be folding ever!

      Here's if you get it in 3 way but you deffo have the equity to call BU's shove if he's not like the nitiest player ever ever and only does that with KK+ (which I honestly doubt he does).

             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    32.69%  31.28%   1.40% { QdQh }
      SB     24.55%  21.18%   3.37% { TT+, AQs+, AQo+ }
      BB     42.76%  39.00%   3.76% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }

      Hello fryandspicy,

      Don't really understand the Call and the fold. You practically putting most of your stack in even against non-aggressor. Who can easily shove with a lot worse. As played I would definitely go broke.

      Other option is if you want to continue and depending on the SB I would either fold or ship myself. Only reason to Call here is to trap some other players or induce them to shove.

      Best regards.
