      Hi,


      Personally I wouldn't fold preflop, we're getting more than 4:1 immediate odds and they're so short they're pretty much guaranteed to not fold postflop, so if anything we can call to flop a Q.

      As played postflop it depends on what you put SB on preflop. A cold4bet is generally very strong unless SB is a complete monkey, but depending on who he is he could have AK maybe when in doubt you likely have to call it off, if you don't give him AK you can fold that flop. Just a crying hand either way.


      Hope it helps.
