      my standard line would be 3-bet, since BU could isolate loose limpers and you should be ahead of his raising range
      If he 4-bets then you can fold. Also you can likely play for stacks if you hit tptk.

      i would have easily 3 bet if he raised less, 80 was a rather big open raise and especially at these limits (with few aggresive players) it felt like he really did have something
