      Poorly played, in my opinion.
      Folding is best nearly... always.

      He very rarely 3bets, and of the times he has 3bet he only folds to a 4bet 1/4th of the time, meaning he (for the most part) 3bets very strong hands.

      Let's say of the 6% of hands he three bets, he continues 4/6 of them. This still gives him a range of TT+, AKo, AQs+. Against this range you still only have 27.01% equity, which just isn't enough to justify a shove in my opinion. This is being generous to his range too, as I doubt he would call a shove with TT - JJ, or AQs.
      If we remove these hands from his range you're down to 23% equity against what he'd call a shove with.

      You can't exactly call as stack size/his stats don't allow for it. AJo plays terrible in 3bet pots OOP too, so you're best just mucking it preflop and moving on to the next hand.

      not sure how you came to this conclusion - His fold to 4bet is 73% which is around 3 out of 4 times and not 1 out of 4 times.

      That was a misread on my point. Got "Fold to 4bet" confused with "Call 4bet".

      Hi nipbourne,

      Let's say his 3bet % is around 8-10%, and that he has a value range of JJ+/AK (3% of starting hands). His 3-bet % from BU is 7%, but vs a CO open it should be even wider, like 10%.

      So 70% of the time, he folds and you win $1.55. 30% of the time you get it in vs JJ+/AK and you have 25.5% equity vs that range. You risk

      EV = 0.7 (1.55) + 0.3 (-4.24+0.255*943) = 1.085 - 0.551 = 0.534
      So we can see that your shove here has a positive expectation.

      Nice hand.
