      I doubt your 4bet has folding equity so getting it in preflop sucks more vs such a range.

      Furthermore, he has a tight range which you probably are about 47% against:


             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG    40.24%  38.38%   1.86% { QdQh }
      UTG+1  59.76%  57.91%   1.86% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }


      [Yes, I know.. nits gonna nit]

      You don't have position so you probably lose more of that 40% equity. Personally I would either consider setmining with deeper stacks and/or deeper MP (more implied odds) or turbo muck preflop.

      The short version: no equity edge, no position, skill edge won't make up for such stacks and tight ranges imo => fold.

      LE: Equity was wrong since I forgot to clear the flop. Seemed fishy to be flipping with QQ vs QQ+, AK preflop. :f_biggrin:

      True story ;)

      Fold PF vs such a nit ;) That's how you exploit him

      Misread him as BU.

      I still think it's a fold. Since he is BB and squeezing vs EP opener his range will be very very value heavy designed to cooler you imo.

      Even with position you have to call with a winning equity of 38% of the time. Can you make up for the equity disadvantage with position vs such a tight range?! I still think deeper (125bb+) stacks vs squeezer or AT LEAST 100bb+ with both players so you have more implied odds, especially vs a weak MP player. Keep in mind that the fish in the pot will also keep BB honest so he probably won't cbet AK when he completely wiffed.
