      Hello,

      Weird spot here.
      Overall, I think calling preflop is the worst option here, since we basically don't know how to play when we don't hit against unknown, and even if we hit there is a good chance that we will be behind.
      Folding doesn't look like a bad option to me, since we are facing a cold 4bet and usually when people make this they are strong so in this particular spot I'd fold.

      On the flop I prefer folding. We don't have any info about villain so I think taking the safest route will be better.

      As played, checking down is good.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Don't really think the additional ~30bb will change the situation much so I would still prefer folding.
