      hey!

      I want to 3b and isolate sb here.

      Problem is that co is pretty tight and only folds 40% to resteals

      So can we just call pre?

      Call pre is definitely an option, we do have position on fish. But I prefer the squeeze, if I feel that CO is 4beting light a lot in that spot vs Hero we can 5bet shove with that hand.

      Hi Farma,

      Is his other 60% (that doesn't fold to 3-bet) mostly calls or 4-bets?

      If it's 4-bets this may be a spot where we actually ship A8s.

      As far as the debate between 3-bet or call I think that both are fine. If we call we have relative position on the PFR and position on the fish, plus a decent hand.

      Yeah call was better prob. Als with A2s-A5s?

      Bogdan, he mostly called 3bets.

      In this case I would treat A2-A5s similar to A8s.

      And since he calls a lot I wouldn't shove over his 4-bet.
