      What you think about preflop 4bet/call vs 4bet/fold or call/fold?
      MP - 27/22/ Raise first 16 and fold to 3bet 26(87)
      CO - 18/14/ 3bet vs mp 7%/fold to 4bet 25%/4b range 3.4 but only 2400 hands 5b range 4(7)
      What is your 3b cold calling range here?
      Standard 4b stack off KK/AA but calling range?

      2.4k hands isn't a lot for positional stats. What's his overall 3bet %? We can use this to extrapolate and guess his CO vs MP 3-betting range. I wonder if he is using a merged range vs MP who is not folding to 3bets.

      Let's say this is almost a 7% 3-betting range. You'll find that AK isn't really a huge favourite here. But at least it still is, so calling to keep these worse hands in is probably fine.

      I usually avoid coldcalling 3-bets as much as possible but this is probably one of those spots where it could be fine.
