Why is this ^ the most likely 4bet shove range for villain? (AJ?.... do you think any decent player is raising AJ in EP at the start of a SNG?).
I would say most likely if we get action we are up against AA/KK/AK (< at worst AK).. AQ is VERY unlikely a) we're holding QQ.. & b) I highly doubt we're getting action from a AQ hand in this spot.
JJ is another possible holding by villain in EP.. but no way they're flatting the 3bet (obv) and chances of them getting it in are super slim imo.
(in a $1-$3 sng this answer of mine would obviously be different... 3-betting & calling villain's 4bet shove is totally reasonable... as is 3betting & shoving most flops if called) OP.. .please post the buyin level.
