    PokerStars - 150/300 Ante 75 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
    Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

    Hero (BB): 22.83 BB
    UTG: 24.48 BB (VPIP: 25.00, PFR: 28.57, 3Bet Preflop: 33.33, Hands: 28)
    MP: 38.7 BB (VPIP: 21.95, PFR: 7.32, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 41)

    SB: 34.05 BB (VPIP: 38.89, PFR: 29.41, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 19)

    6 players post ante of 0.25 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

    Pre Flop: (pot: 3 BB) Hero has A:diamond: J:diamond:

    UTG calls 1 BB, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to 4 BB,Hero???

    Uargh. So guy looks reg-ish on small sample, UTG guy limps and he 4x Iso raises in SB, we have around 11 tourney adjusted-BB left. From HRC AJs holds down to around a 10% SB range: 10.4%, 66+ A8s+ A9o+ (without fold equity).

    Well, should we fold in this spot? His sizing just doesnt look like a weak hand, at least pocket pair, lots of stronger Ax combos, maybe some big suited BW at best, and don't think he will ever fold. He could also just Jam alot of medium strengh hands in this spot.

    Any suggestions? Thx for the help.

    20 hands on villain and he has been really active. I think I would shove but it is pretty much bottom of my range unless I have seen something stupid on showdown. His sizing is pretty standard versus one limper and antes in play being OOP. But yeah in general SB is not raised wide so its bit awkward spot.
