      Should I take 4-bets from unknown stealers seriously?

      PokerStars - $0.02 NL ZOOM - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $6.72
      Hero (SB): $1.01
      BB: $4.96
      UTG: $1.68
      UTG+1: $5.21
      UTG+2: $2.01
      MP: $1.30
      MP+1: $2.00
      CO: $6.06

      Hero posts SB $0.01, BB posts BB $0.02

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.03) Hero has A:spade: J:club:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, fold, BTN raises to $0.54, Hero raises to $0.90, BTN raises to $1.26, Hero calls $0.11 and is all-in

      Flop: ($2.04, 2 players) Q:spade: J:heart: K:heart:

      Turn: ($2.04, 2 players) Q:heart:

      River: ($2.04, 2 players) 5:spade:

      Hero shows A:spade: J:club: (Two Pair, Queens and Jacks) (Pre 8%, Flop 16%, Turn 8%)
      BTN shows A:diamond: A:heart: (Two Pair, Aces and Queens) (Pre 92%, Flop 84%, Turn 92%)
      BTN wins $1.97

      P.S. The raise to 90c was a mistake, I meant to go AI.

      Hey MoneyDearest,

      I mean it depends on their stats, with Zoom you do not have dynamics (eg. he steals 5 out of 5 times on the button) so you have to rely more on static situations. that means you have to follow the chart more so I think you have to 3bet/fold here as I am confident he is not going to shove often enough with worse hands that gives you sufficient equity to call

      Best regards,
