      Without reads, no clue. Typically you'll get into two extreme opposite situations:

      - either villain is min3betting often, in which case 4-betting and calling it off is massively +ev.

      - or villain is rarely min3betting, in which case you're pretty much always up against QQ+/AK at best and committing 56bb more preflop on top of our 4bb opening raise is massively -ev even for only 60bb. In that case you can try calling if you feel comfortable postflop knowing it's very possible he has KK+ anyway so your outs are somewhat tainted, or just fold it until you know better instead of potentially making a huge mistake.

      Hence if you have nothing to tip the balance one way or another, like you've seen him min3bet before a bunch already or he looks quite tight overall, you just have to pick one and stick with it no matter what.

      Hope it helps.
