      Guy is 23/19 reg, but key piece of info is 0% 3bet in 96 hands. I know this doesn't mean he only has aces, but means he's rarely if ever bluffing. Of course there's always 96 hands of trash come along every now and then.

      I hate my call here, because I'm having to play fit or fold w big RIO. The only upside is it disguises my hand strength.

      Vs such a tight 3better I think:

      Fold > 4bet/Fold > Call > 4bet/Call

      In 96 hands, 3b% is going to be really inaccurate. VPIP and PFR are going to be somewhat accurate, and a 23/19 player typically is sufficiently aggro in these spots.

      Given the starting positions (BU vs blinds), I think this is an easy 4bet and get it in spot.

      Postflop: Just keep firing, we have the best hand almost always now unless he has AA (1 combo).

      If his 3bet was really 3% or less over a large sample
      Fold > call > 4bet

      Given what we actually know and in this actual situation
      4bet > call > fold

      In short, don't be so quick to draw conclusions.
