      SB stats 17/14 AF:4 WTSD:21 W$SD:64 3bet:5 cbet f:56 fold to 4bet:100(7/7) after 1282 hands.

      BB stats 13/6 AF:1,7 WTSD:33 W$SD:72 after. He is a weak reg, who overplays his hands.

      Hello,

      Interesting spot here.
      One can argue about all - call, fold and raise being right.
      If we go for a raise, it might be a good option since SB is folding a lot against a 4bet but then BB is out there too who might just call us with his 99 or so.
      If we decide to call then we might have a hard time playing postflop since our hand is kind of dominated (even if we hit A or K we might not have the best hand) but BB tends to overplay his hands.
      If we fold it's kind of weak.

      Overall, I wouldn't really hate folding here considering that we have invested only 3bb and both calling and 4betting are likely to get us in trouble.

      Best,
      Plamen
