      This is spot what i dont like. I dont know what to do.
      AQo is little bit too weak to stack off and cold calling OOP is bad.
      I have some problems on that spots.

      I have opponent who 3bets 8% IP vs Hero
      Im folding or 4betting only. (But most of time opponent dont have sample size for fold to 4bet stats)
      Then im only value 4betting OOP vs 8% 3bet
      But is ok to have some cold calling range OOP vs 3bet?

      BTN: $15.80 (63.2 bb)
      Hero (SB): $25 (100 bb)
      BB: $25.35 (101.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with Q A
      BTN folds, Hero raises to $0.75, BB raises to $2.25, Hero raises to $5, BB raises to $25.35 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Hi Urmo,

      If villain is really aggro BvB we can even increase our 4-bet/call range. In this case AQo may still be too weak especially since we made a really small 4-bet (20 BB) and thus we need a lot more pot odds to make the call.

      BvB is a bit different than lets say UTG vs BTN so our calling range can be wider because 3-bet ranges are usually wider. But starting to call with hands that have more playability (until we get reads) is better. So hands like AQs (unless we can 4-bet/call), AJs, etc is fine.

      As a 4-bet size I would probably make it 22-23 BB with all my range.
