      If you mean CO is TAG and BU is fish then I think I'm just 4-betting here and hoping to get all in with the fish. The TAG's opening range will probably be pretty wide here so I don't think he'll call your raise too often and hopefully you just get BU to push all in for a easy call.

      I don't think the TAG would call v.often - I think if he was to continue he'll just shove which gives us a pretty awkward decision to make and I think you could make arguments for folding/calling there but I don't think this spot will occur much.

      I believe CO is the TAG, as BU doesn't have a full stack. If that's right, I'm just 4betting prety big because I think the fish won't really care about bet sizing. I'd make it $3 and then we obviously can't fold to a push.

      I don't like calling here, because you miss out on a lot of value from the fish =)
