      Hi, I'm new to MSS (former BSS play with low win rate).

      3-betting here was an easy decision, but I was left wondering how to react to my opponent's all-in 4-bet.

      Looking at his stats I calculated that I hadthe pot odds I needed to call against his range so I called. Was I right to?

      Hey SnoWonder,

      Welcome to SSS/MSS forum!

      According to the articles you have a 3-bet/fold with JJ vs middle position openraisers. I also believe that would be correct play in your case.

      If you calculate your needed equity you'll see you need 38.9% equity including rake and after you put in equilator your hand vs his range you see you have only 36.6% equity against AK/JJ+ and I don't think his shoving range will be any looser in this case.

      Best regards,
