      SB: $289 (289 bb)
      BB: $105.45 (105.5 bb)
      UTG: $140.30 (140.3 bb)
      MP: $146.77 (146.8 bb)
      Hero (CO): $111.26 (111.3 bb)
      BTN: $684.55 (684.6 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with :As: :6s: :Jc: :8c:
      UTG folds, MP raises to $4.70, Hero calls $4.70, BTN calls $4.70, SB raises to $25.70, BB folds, MP calls $21, Hero calls $21, BTN calls $21

      Flop: ($105) :9h: :Qc: :6c: (4 players)
      SB checks, MP bets $102.50, Hero calls $85.36, 2 folds

      Turn: ($275.72) :3c: (2 players)
      River: ($275.72) :7h: (2 players)

      MP 29/30; Aggression 6.4(!), 300 hands. Reg.
      SB and BB are recreational. SB 3b 15.9%, 100 hands.

      Once SB checks here, is an aggressive reg stabbing/stacking here wide enough to call?

      Here is SB's hand. Do you like his stab/commit vs SB and my range? Would you check in his shoes?
      Thanks

      Dislike the flat a lot if SB is squeezing close to 20%. If mp is paying attention, he probably shouldn't be raising many hands that don't 4bet vs sb's squeeze.

      It's only 100 hands on SB. MP surely can't have a coherent strategy for 4betting most of his range here, in case SB squeezes. When he opens, he doesn't even know he's getting called in one spot.

      How many hands do you think it takes to know someone is too light pre with 3bets? Why wouldn't mp adjust after 100 hands?

      I'm not saying he won't adjust. I'm saying he won't (and shouldn't) adjust by simply not opening many hands he isn't willing to 4b against SB. That would simply be an overadjustment.

      Maybe it's just me but i'd limp lots of hands in utg/mp in this line up if sb 3bets recklessly. Only really raising the 4bettable hands.

      I'd 3bet this hand. Works better imo in lower spr HU than mw high spr. AJ86 just too gappy, low nut potential with straightdraws / weak 2prs.
