Really it was to play fit or fold post which I don't like, I also didn't like 5 bet GII pre 150bb deep against someone that hasn't even 3 bet yet and is 3x 4 betting. The guy may be a 50/40 but he has seen 35 hands/6 orbits of play without 3 betting. Does this indicate he is not 3 betting light too often and probably not 4 betting light at all? Or is the sample just too small to really worry about his 3 bet stat?
Like Aces said about folding, it was my first instinct but I just felt like I couldn't vs a 50/40, it was a super awkward spot.
Would you say the best preflop action is 5B GII>Fold>Call?
