      His range was wide, but should I fold this marginal hand?

      Hi Gonchan,

      OOP, you are much better off folding this preflop versus a 45 BB stack.
      You have very poor playability and when you do hit you rarely get paid, but on the other hand when he has a better hand you always pay him.

      Against a 80+ BB stack we can 4-bet/fold.
