      Hi Daisuke,

      Since the PFR is a tighter opener/fishy guy I'm not a huge fan of a call here. We could 3-bet as a thin value bet and to isolate the villain here.
      With two midstacks behind us we may be inviting a lot of squeezes so calling should be our last option.

      As played we have to fold to the squeeze.

      Generally speaking the villain you have opening is super important. Here you have a fishy guy with less than a full stack so we want to play big cards, connected cards. Also, since we have mid stacks behind us we should also look at playing most of our hands with 3-bets to isolate the PFR.
