      Your sample looks way too small to take the positional 3bet % seriously. but if sample was larger and we knew that villain was 3betting a ton, I would start 4bet bluffing a ton and also 4bet/call with a wider range of AQ+/88+.

      Question is whether this dynamic has already been established or not. If not folding here is better cos villain would just jam hands that has 88 crushed here and we are not committed after 4betting (and we should be folding). As a result if we cannot 4bet/call 88 profitably, I rather wait for a better hand to 4bet bluff with (like KQo or AJo with blockers)

      I am guessing that you don't have such a dynamic, if not you would have mentioned it. And also people are just not pushing so light in MP vs CO, as compared to Co vs BU or blind vs blind.
