      Hi Rahica,

      Preflop: If this were 100 BB deep I would say that stacking off here would be "standard" and would be fine.

      However, 200+ BB deep this is very player dependent as most people do not 5-bet without KK/AA. So our stack off becomes a mistake.

      For your shove to be profitable here you need villain to fold his 5-bet often (you can calculate the FE needed) or you need him to stack off lighter like AK/JJ type hands.

      Given that he 3-bet from the blinds to MP I would call and play postflop. In this particular example we are most likely losing all our money anyway.
