      I know this looks tight and it's a minraise, but this guy's button steal was 4% in 1.4k hands (4% out of 46 possible steal situations) - I can't see myself being ahead in this situation..

      Preflop: Hero is BB with J, A.
      6 folds, BU raises to $2.00, 2 folds, BU gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.5.

      That's pretty weird, what are his vpip/pfr?

      AJ is certainly not good agianst 4% range, but if his pfr is something like 7%+, then there is something wrong with this BTN OR %, variance is still possible in 46 situations I think.

      Hey WildBeans,

      I resteal shove this one and make a note.

      What are villain's other stats? (VPIP, PFR, ATS, limp late position)

      Imo, 4% steal BU isn't realistic, it's either variance which is still possible or he doesn't like to steal unless situation is very good and 2 short stacks in the blinds is very good situation, so, he might minraise steal just for this reason.
