      Hi Daisuke,

      Preflop: villain only has about 28 BBs and I think our hand is good enough to go with him. A lot of these short/mid stacks have a wide range of stacking off preflop and AQo is doing well against that.

      As an exercise, if you have time, equilab certain ranges versus your AQo and see how you do.

      Remember that part of the profit will also come when he folds to our 3-bet.

      AQo had 57 % equity against his 3 BET,
      all in if I get 4 bet?

      Hi Daisuke,

      Yes, we would go all in once we 3-bet and he shoves (preflop).

      57% sounds about right and depending on the 3-bet size we usually need 30-40% equity at most.
