      His stats seem solid (although that is nowhere near to any solid sample size)

      But unless you have reason to believe he's a crazy uberaggro - fold it against an unknown decent size 4bet

      Basically the whole "3-bet as a bluff the first time" has dwindled down to the lowest stakes these days and people have been doing it long enough for others to begin fighting that with 4-bets when it happens soon after one of the players joined the table.

      Not sure where you play but on FTP I see enough people around at nl25 randomly throwing small 4-bet bluffs the first time you 3-bet resteal on them blinds vs late position, so I wouldn't 3-bet/fold JJ in that spot when he just came at the table.

      If for some reason I don't want to 3-bet/5-bet, I'll just call and play postflop, so as not to put myself in a high variance spot where I could make a mistake no matter which option (fold or 5-bet) I choose.

      Hope it helps.
