      Stacks:
      UTG ($3.52) 88bb
      UTG+1 ($4) 100bb
      CO ($2.85) 71bb
      BTN ($1.82) 46bb
      SB ($4.29) 107bb
      HERO (BB) ($4) 100bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.06, 6 players) HERO is BB Q:spade: Q:diamond:
      UTG raises to $0.12, UTG+1 calls $0.12, 2 folds, SB raises to $0.52, HERO?

      Stats:
      UTG=36/32, 71h
      MP=20/16, 213h
      SB=unknown

      Of course, if I decide to 4-bet, I would never turn my hand into a bluff.

      So, would be flatting here the best option? UTG fish could call as well. However, if MP would also call, 4-way with QQ and OOP would be nasty.

      Preflop: If SB ever bluffs in spots like this it would be a good spot to go for the squeeze, attack the dead money, maybe isolate the fish. And against his all in range which should be AK+, (JJ)QQ+ you are doing fine.

      It's a higher variance spot (in the short term) but I still feel it would be profitable to 4-bet.

      Just calling the squeeze is also an option and I would do it to keep fish in, especially if they were looser. However the UTG, based on the stats you provided, doesn't seem to be the biggest fish.

      Of course after we 4-bet we are going with the hand.

      Hi Bogdan!

      I actually did go with a 4bet, as you can see, there`s no flop action. :)
