      Poker Stars $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      BTN: $24.00 - VPIP: 43, PFR: 25, 3B: 7, AF: 0.7, Hands: 83
      SB: $30.57 - VPIP: 20, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 1.7, Hands: 301
      BB: $20.03 - VPIP: 14, PFR: 8, 3B: 9, AF: 1.5, Hands: 86
      UTG: $16.99 - VPIP: 42, PFR: 26, 3B: 9, AF: 3.2, Hands: 73
      Hero (MP): $25.00 -
      CO: $32.89 - VPIP: 18, PFR: 15, 3B: 2, AF: 2.3, Hands: 191

      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP with K :heart: A :club:
      UTG calls $0.25, Hero raises to $1, 1 fold, BTN calls $1, SB raises to $3.75, 2 folds, Hero raises to $25, 2 folds

      So I opted to directly shove since I thought that any smaller 4bet would make the reg play the same and I'd prefer to not get in some really weird scenarios.

      I'm thinking about calling here:
      -I might keep the fish in the pot and get lots of money if I flop a pair
      -If the fish folds I'll have position and play vs a defined range

      What do you think it's the best option here?

      Hello DeMarcohsp,

      Calling is out of question for me, either I am 4betting or just folding. Neither I don't like the 4bet-ship cause you don't allow him to Call with worse nor come over the top with weaker hands. He will just flat with very strong range vs our equity isn't going to be good.

      Best Regards.
