      I dont think calling is ever an option here. Playability is going to be poor when we are oop 3way. So its between a 4b and a fold. If villain's actual 3b range is 5% or more, u can stack off with AKo profitably.

      Based on what we can deduce here, MP is probably a fish and he is also shorter than usual. This means that CO's 3b range is likelier to be wider than usual and thus this should be a 4bet with the intention of calling it off.
