      Don't really like my call here preflop. Is this a fold or a 4bet?

      CO 3bets a lot, but it still seems quite strong to 3bet UTG? Also the cold call of the BU looks strong. If it is a 4bet, I guess it is a 4bet/ship?

      With a sample of 190 hands, I think we can assume his 3b is at least 8%+ here. You are opening from UTG which is kind of bad for 4betting here as his 3b range should be stronger than usual, but there is more dead money from BU and CO is short.

      So I would 4bet here and stack off. Just jam here unless you want to have a 4bet bluff squeezing range, then maybe you can make it 28bb.
