      CO: $0.94 (47 bb)
      BTN: $0.70 (35 bb)
      SB: $4.98 (249 bb)
      BB: $2 (100 bb)
      UTG: $7.27 (363.5 bb)
      Hero (MP): $2 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.07, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.20, 3 folds

      Here is the guy: 48/23/11.8/83 vpip/pfr/3bet/hands

      When I added some junk into his 3bet range (e.g. KJs, TT, suited connectors) I even turned out to have more than 50% equity.

      However, I remember one of the judges saying that KQ (and I assume AJ) is too weak for 4betting. If we 4bet, we have to 4bet-shove (short guy)

      Thanks.

      Hi.

      Ajs is almost always too weak for 4b call unlrss dynamics are insane (people shoving kq kj at a9 etc)
      I also think ajs is too valuable to use as a four bet bluff when it is suited.

      I almost always call here. Yes u are gonna be oop but kqs and ajs are pretty much the best hands to call 3bets with regardless of position.

      Oh, I see. Thanks, mbml, I'll write your advice down :)

      In this hand, however, we can't call, can we? He's short (I've just noticed it myslef, and I was editing the original post to highlight it).

      I think our options here is to shove or fold. Given our limited samplr i think folding is fine. If he was really thst aggro over a larger sample i would shove.
