      Imo this depends entirely on the SB's ATS and 4b.

      If his 4b is a value range, then you're behind everything.

      Thanks for your answer. I had only 70 of his hands. So far he had 5 chances to steal from SB and did it once.

      Ah, but I forgot, you probably don't have any reliable info on his 4b range. That would take quite a lot of hands.

      70 is definitely too little to base anything on his 4b stat.

      After a 4b, it's not really a good push, since you're behind any pocket pair and AK. Would he really 4b with anything else?

      It's pretty unlikely people 4b as a bluff in NL10, so in a best case scenario, you're in a coinflip situation. You'll be dominated most of the time though. Should be a fold here.

      I know though that AQs is a hard hand to fold in the heat of the game, since it feels like an AK (even though it isn't). AK goes up against KK way less often, and isn't dominated against QQ/AK. Did he have KK?

      Hello Alan883,

      Well, do you plan to do the 3bet for value or as bluff? And why not just Call and play postflop in smaller pot and keep weaker Ax/Qx in the play. Playing for the stacks vs unknown is just pure pointless play here, you gonna loose a lot money with such actions. At the best for you it's a coinflip.

      Best Regards.
