      BB is 75/75/4 hands. First 3bet
      SB is 75/25/4 hands looks like loosy player over so small sample
      His stack is to small to set mine, but i'm hoping sb will join.
      On flop i have only 43% against his AJ+, JJ+ range. So probably good lay down?

      Hey T,

      Is he a pro midstacker by any chance? If he is I would much rather 4bet pre and get it in against him givem positions and ranges.

      Otherwise, you should still call flop imo.. A high will cbet too often, so will hands like 88-99 that are in a midstacker's 3betting range very often, same with AQ, AK..

      What plan on turn if SB folds? stack him on any J- and fold on Q+ ?

      He will give up often with A high and probably pot control with most other pairs so I would not be too tempted to call down. His bluff range is narrower with each street but on the flop it's wide enough to call. There's also something hard to explain, since small differences in his timing might change my mind.. That comes with experience though so I wouldn't make a decisive explanation JUST on that but you can think about it and take it into account.
