      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has Q:club: J:diamond:

      fold, fold, CO raises to 2.5 BB, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, fold, CO raises to 18 BB, Hero raises to 32 BB, fold

      Hero shows Q:club: J:diamond: ()
      Hero wins 37.5 BB


      600 hands, 23/21, 3bet 10, fold to 3bet 73%, 4b+ from CO 44%. (4/9), attempt to steal CO 41%
      I saw him 4betting with QQ, and once J9o.

      Is 3bet ok here, because his range CO is so wide, and his size is like for stealing, and he folds often to 3bet? Then when I look at his 4bet stat from CO, plus he steals 41%, then I can conclude that it is most likely very wide range, which has to fold to min 5bet, which doesnt have to work so often.
      I would fold if he shoves.

      Hi mla,

      Preflop: the 3-bet IP is fine given the info we have on villain however you look at his overall fold to 3-bet and then his CO 4-bet. You should look at his fold to 3-bet from CO which obviously is not that big (given he 4-bet 44% of the time).

      Once we get 4-bet really small we can 5-bet small as well without committing ourselves given that we have 112 BBs (which is usually the problem we have 100 BB deep).
