      I would 4bet pre bc i don't want to see a flop (many times an over card will be there and it will be difficult for us to continue being oop + bb is committed and we are happy to get the money in vs his stack + btn is a fish and able to call with worse).

      The best option here is to just 4bet and put BB all-in. No point to flat it and then drag another guy along who could hit some overcards.

      Best Regards.
