      Hero posts SB €0.25, BB posts BB €0.50

      Fold or shove?
      Still think that fold is the best but it is close I think.




      Similar hand below facing a min 4B in SB:

      Hero (SB): $48.00
      BB: $29.89

      Hero posts SB $0.25, BB posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has A:spade: 5:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to $1.50, Hero raises to $5.00, fold, BTN raises to $12.00, fold

      I have been facing these situations quite often lately. BU raises I 3B from SB with relatively good hands (ok the A5s might not be the best but these 2 hands are jsut 2 among many) and BU min 4B.
      I can't really call OOP with 88-JJ (or can I vs a min 4B for set value?)/AT-AQ but I can't shove either. I know that for 90% of the time he is stealing but risking 100B to find out is expensive.

      How should I handle these situations? Not 3B vs that kind of players and play OOP but with a smaller pot?

      Thanks

      JJ is shove
      He is 4-bet bluffing or 4-bet/calling with TT+/AQ+ too often that you should consider folding it pf
      A5s you can fold or if you know he likes to 4-bet a lot then just call pf and play postflop
