      iPoker - $0.50 NL FAST (6 max) - Holdem - 4 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      SB: 100 BB (VPIP: 26.50, PFR: 24.92, 3Bet Preflop: 10.34, Hands: 327)
      Hero (BB): 111.8 BB
      CO: 251.26 BB (VPIP: 28.51, PFR: 24.68, 3Bet Preflop: 10.26, Hands: 731)
      BTN: 64.24 BB (VPIP: 18.36, PFR: 13.73, 3Bet Preflop: 5.12, Hands: 939)

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: Q:heart:

      fold, BTN raises to 3 BB, SB raises to 9 BB, Hero raises to 18 BB, fold, SB raises to 100 BB and is all-in, Hero calls 82 BB

      Flop: (203 BB, 2 players) 3:diamond: A:heart: 3:club:

      Turn: (203 BB, 2 players) 2:heart:

      River: (203 BB, 2 players) 3:spade:

      SB shows K:spade: Q:spade: (Three of a Kind, Threes) (Pre 30%, Flop 2%, Turn 0%)
      Hero shows A:diamond: Q:heart: (Full House, Threes full of Aces) (Pre 70%, Flop 98%, Turn 100%)
      Hero wins 199 BB

      3bets from sb 19%, vs bu 19%, folds to 4bet 0/4 times.

      I saw him 4bet+ with AA, AQ+, A3s.

      I think folding is too weak preflop considering his range, and would cold call be ok? I think it would put me often in trouble because he cbets 100% flop and turn.

      Is it ok to call shove since it is blind vs blind?

      When you 4bet here you should have already planned on whether to use this as a 4bet bluff (vs a tighter guy) or a 4bet for value (loose aggro guy).

      SB is clearly a LAG, based on his 26/25/10 stats. And given that he doesn't fold to 4bets (0 out of 4 times), I think this is a really standard stack off.

      I don't like cold calling too much - Hard to balance your range and you often need to slowplay some combos of QQ+ for range protection. It's still possible though, and I usually cold call when I am up against early positions OR if a fish is involved in the hand but in late position battles i usually just 4bet everything.
