      I was wondering if I played this too agressively at first? Should I have folded from the beginning?

      Hello,

      Just fold here. We have a raise and a reraise, and even though they are weak, our hand isn't good enough and we can get called quite often or forced to play for stacks since we are investing 50% of our stack preflop.
      When BU shoves I'm not really sure we can fold here considering our left stack and the size of the pot.

      The main mistake here is choosing to 4bet here.

      Best,
      Plamen
