      Preflop missclick, I usually raise 8BB here. Is shove bad against BU unknown? I usually don't give much credit to BU's 4bet, because most of BU players steal 50% from BU. If I have stats from player, I would shove JJ if villian steals around 40-50% and 4bets often from BU, but what to do if villian is unknown?

      Hi Mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I think that our initial 3-bet should be larger but since it was a misclick it creates a different scenario.

      It's possible that villain is bluffing given our small amount but we are risking 95 BB in this pot when shoving and we need quite a bit of FE because the pot is a lot smaller than you'd usually have. So I think that we have a very high variance (short term) spot where it's going to be hard to be more than break even.

      Have you calculated the amount of FE you need here assuming a "standard" calling range?
