      Don't see any other other way of playing this. I know villain is capable of calling with dominated hands AJ+, KQ+.

      Without further reads I can't be sure he goes broke with worse preflop, so I am flipping at best if I call the 4b shove.

      I don't see calling the open raise as an option either since I lose value against the range I have dominated and also I am likely to see a MWP, all-be it IP

      If villain makes it 3/4bb then I might prefer a flat call IP on the BU since I can play more easily postflop and against a dominated range.

      Hello muel294,

      Most likely I wouldn't be 3betting in first place vs such a PFR but just flatting and playing postflop. If we do 3bet then we are turning our hand into bluff.

      Best Regards.
