      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: ~100 BB deep with aggressive history I would 4-bet/call here.

      A lot of our profit will come from him folding his 3-bet and us collecting the 16 big blinds in the pot.

      His squeeze is 11 BB so I'd make our 4-bet no larger than 23-24 BB which means that once he shoves we need roughly 37% equity to call.

      Now, with JJ, against a nutty range of QQ+, AK we have 36.2% so close enough since he can also shove worse hands on occasion (one combo of TT puts us at almost 38%).

      But again the value does not come from calling the shove but rather the actual 4 bet and dead money we collect.
