      calling a 4bet with 100BB (120BB too) effective stacks is bad. especially OOP.
      short reasons are: (assוming this guy is a TAG and has a standard 4bet range)

      - you will get little (or you just won't) value from AK when A,K doesn't show up on the flop.

      -when AK show up, you are screwed. (either you c/f flop or c/c flop and then forced to c/f)

      - KK+ has you crashed any way.

      - You aren't getting the implied to call for set value. You call 6$ to win 12.25+23.55 (villains remaining stack) which gives you 5.9:1.

      So:

      If that guy is a nit I prefer to fold it pf. If that guy has wired stats or 4bet% light I'd shove over pf.

      Word. Classic case of either fold or bet being the correct play, and I compromise and call.

      I really need to have Elephant working!
