             Equity     Win     Tie
      MP2    51.64%  50.11%   1.53% { JJ+, AQs+, AKo }
      MP3    48.36%  46.83%   1.53% { QQ }


      if the opponent see that I isolate a limper, that means that he is not 3betting light ? wright ?
      based on the stats I have on my opponent, and the sample size of the stats how do you play in this spot ?
      I think it is fold preflop as my equity calculation shows

      Hello,

      First of all, I want to ask you to post just one hand in a single thread. Thanks in advance.

      To the hands - both stack offs are fine.

      #1 - just ship it preflop, rather than 4bet 40bb. When we 4bet this much we don't really are going to fold at all, so there's no point in doing that.


      #2 - Against a rather unknown opponent stacking off is better than folding.

      Best,
      Plamen
