      Was this completely insane or a well reasoned decision!?

      I personally hate getting it all-in preflop here, expect to be against AK / AA / KK, but if he folds enough its going to be profitable for us in the long term.

      Calling feels horrible OOP, but I did consider it.

      Just 4-bet?

      Hi Phil,

      Preflop: What do we know about villain? This is dependent on the opponent.

      Considering he only has 80 BB I can't imagine he is the greatest player.

      I would personally 4-bet and go with the hand.
