      Started thinking about these spots, after lost 4-5 buyins like this, that we will never have FE here if we shove, and most likely we go against KK+ What do you think, can we play 4b/fold here? We haven't put much deadmoney in, if we put in 20bb+ then no quiestion, but here? Is it worth getting it in? Really started to doubt.

      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: What's our history with the guy? Have we been aggro to each other?

      HE clearly is really aggro and he doesn't like folding to a 4-bet which means that he may actually be quite looser here.

      So without any FE we would risk another $46 to win about $108 which gives us about 43% pot odds.

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 49.18% 38.86% 10.32% AdKh
      MP3 50.82% 40.50% 10.32% TT+, AQs+, AQo+

      If we take AQo off we have 43% so we are BE. And that's assuming no worse will play like this.

      So I think it's a shove.
