      I think your 3bet size is too large. I usually make 2.5X OOP resteals vs 40bb stacks, so in this case it would be like 3-3.10

      Important thing here is his 4bet/broke range. Use equilab to construct a reasonable 4bet shoving range for him, and count your pot odds here.

      You need to call 14.75 more in a pot of X? Then any hand with enough equity to call it off here should be in your 3b/broke range. Do it for the worse pocket pair, worse AX, and worse KX, and there you have it - A self-constructed range.

      Try it, it should be a good exercise. I'll have a look at it
