      Hey urmo1,

      I think you can 4bet a little smaller here to help induce action, maybe $2.40 or so. It'd be great if SB thinks he has fold-equity still, although might not be practical given his stack size. You don't want to go any smaller and end up playing multiway in a 4bet pot.

      Usually SB is not squeezing light vs early position raise+call. It's not a great spot to stack off light unless you know for a certain SB is not positionally aware. Mainly I'd stick to KK+ without reads (although vs half stack possibly expand to QQ+/AK.)

      According to your stats SB is 3betting light, but how often vs EP action? Possibly not at all.
