      Hi.

      This is a tough spot. He is pretty much never folding with this size, it's probably AK/JJ+. When he puts in 38BB he is committed with almost any hand here, maybe if you made it 9 and he clicks it back to 14 I still think he can have some bluffing hands in his range.

      I don't really mind the fold, but you should call if he does ship, if not your 4bet is pointless and you should just call the 3bet.

      Thanks.

      Thanks,

      without cold caller I vould hav called, but now theres more dead money in the pot, and playing AQo, 3way is just fit or fold..

      I think you should be more inclined to call here actually.

      -His raise size is smaller which favours calling
      -3way gives you better pot odds on a call
      -I think he is much likelier to play honest in a multiway 3bet pot

      4bet here is good if dynamic is really aggro and you have been 4bet bluffing so much that he would even consider 4bet bluffing you.

      But given his minclickitback size and also you 4bet squeezing (people rarely do this as a bluff, let alone rebluff a move which is rarely a bluff), which was why i suggested the fold. I think his range is pretty nutted here. If he jams, I think we can include some worse hands like AQ/TT in his range which would price us into calling with 38.50 left behind.

      And if 4betting doesn't price you into calling (4betting for value), then don't do it.
