      Hi,


      BU is a non-factor, he has less than a 20bb stack and is obviously bad, he could have any sort of trash hand given that he didn't 3bet himself.

      BB cold4bet you but he has a 40bb stack. Since we have absolutely no read on him it's safe to assume his range could be a lot wider than the usual very tight AK/QQ+ cold4bet range from most tags. Plus you have an A so card removal effect and all that.


      You could certainly do some maths and assign them some ranges, it's not that complicated, but i think you'll find that BB often has enough crap there to make that call profitable given the pot odds, as you're likely ahead of BU to begin with and you're never in that bad a shape against BB either. So I'd call here.


      Hope it helps.
