      BU seems a bit nitty but then again I only have 34 hands to go on so just treated villain as an unknown.

      I wasn't really concerned about UTG as he was an absolute drooler. Expected him to go broke with napkins really.

      Vs the BU however I just decided to make a small preflop 4b to keep it in line with any 4b bluffs I decide to make in future. For example if he starts 3b'ing me loads IP. In addition with him being an unknown I don't know whether he 3b's me as a bluff or goes broke with worse. I also go broke just because strategy content dictates that it is rarely a huge mistake to go broke p/f with QQ+ and AK.

      Hello muel294,

      Just ship da money after UTG flat-call there like that or either plan to fold it. Whilst BTN has also the fish in the pot I assume his 3betting range being stronger so I am not really a huge fan of going broke whilst he seems to be also rather nitty to me.

      Best Regards.

      Thanks veriz

      If I had more hands on the BU I might have folded to the 3b.

      Re: 4b shove. I am guessing the reason is by 4 betting small we don't have enough FE* preflop? I guess we don't really need to think about balancing too much here since we are generally only playing for value?

      Lets say BU stats are something like 23/18/3/5/15/100 hands and we are HU with no dead money from the fish would you prefer a small 4b instead?
