      Assuming he is an unknown, SB's cold call is an indication of weakness.

      W/o stats, I am inclined to fold in this spot. But by no means is folding the clear cut option. With a clearer idea of how MP3 plays, a case could be made for pushing.

      Without stats, you are mostly gambling/guessing what MP3 has so Shove accordingly and make a note of it.

      With a 17bb stack, TT+,AK+ is enough to be profitable in the long run.

      especially when SB calls and basically sweetens the spot due the deadmoney he generates

      I shove preflop as strategy prescribes.

      Best regards,
