      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is BB with 4 :diamond: 4 :heart:
      CO raises to $0.75, 2 folds, Hero raises to $30.31, 1 fold

      The push is bad because I guess that his stacksize is a bit too big for us to do it conveniently, even if he has so far folded to every single 3Bet.

      Could a push be OK vs this guy if he had a 20BB stack instead?
      His strategy most likely includes a lot of stealing and this could be a good counterstrategy.

      Hello Avatars91,

      As long you assume he folds a lot whilst opens wide range then sure why not.

      Best Regards.

      Is this not a close spot given his stack size?
      Looks like a bit too big a stack size to push against unless we really assume to have tons of fold equity.

      Well, lets ask this way. Do you think you have fold equity here?

      Sure, at least some.
      I am just a bit worried about the risk/reward ratio.
      I suppose that the push against his stack size still ought to be fine in this particular case :)

      If you assume to have fold equity then should be clearly possible to do it as +EV, if rather not then it's just a coinflip at the best for us. :P
