      Hello w4terman,

      Snip-snap-fold preflop. :) Can't really see how you can ever Call vs his stack? Postflop is pretty standard vs his stack.

      Best Regards.

      If they are very aggressive and 3betting a lot then we should rather consider tightening up a bit and wait for a hand and then go for 4bet-value. Difficult to also say with what we could go broke or with what not while don't know his go-broke range.

      But definitely calling is going to make you lose a lot money in long run.
