      In this spot I felt like the BTN raise would be super wide as the opponent is super LAGy.

      The cold call on the BB was by a big fish who calls super wide pre-flop.

      Good point to shove, if a little high variance?

      Seat 1 is the button
      Seat 1: Player1 ( $21.93 USD ) - VPIP: 36, PFR: 32, 3B: 27, AF: 8.0, Hands: 28
      Seat 3: Player3 ( $7.82 USD ) - VPIP: 38, PFR: 0, 3B: 0, AF: 0.5, Hands: 8
      Seat 5: Hero ( $10.50 USD ) - VPIP: 31, PFR: 25, 3B: 7, AF: 2.7, Hands: 25674

      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP): $10.50 (105 bb)
      CO: $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with J A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.25, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.90, SB folds, BB calls $0.80, Hero raises to $10.50 and is all-in, BTN folds, BB calls $6.92 and is all-in

      Flop: ($16.59) 2 8 2 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Final Board: 2 8 2 7 5
      BB showed J 8 and won $15.84 ($8.02 net)
      Hero mucked J A and won $0.00 (-$7.82 net)

      Hi Phil,

      Preflop: The hand we shoved with is not bad and as long as BTN doesn't call very wide (which I doubt he will) I like your play.

      Of course this is assuming that the fish has a wide range for cold calling and calls our shove.

      Only had a limited number of hands on the BTN.

      I assumed he would fold a high percentage of his raising range and would expect to be behind if he called, but had no stats to back it up.

      What would you *most likely* expect the BTN to play like in terms of cold-calling, or is it too random to say?

      (The BB surprised me, he cold called with J8s...Then hit the 8, but not important)

      Are we talking about BTNs calling range of our 4-bet shove? Or BBs cold call range for the shove?

      I was asking about the BTN.

      I'm not going to try to understand a BB who cold-calls all in with J8s!

      Considering that we shoved after a fish called it's very likely to get a lot of credit so unless he is spewy I would expect him to only call the top of his range which would be AK, QQ+. He may even fold AKo but I doubt it.

      What would you do there? What's your range in his shoes?

      That is pretty much my own range there given our stack sizes. I would probably fold AK here to be honest.
