Optimal Seating Short Handed

Hey all, came across an interesting situation Iíd like some extra opinions on.
I regularly play short handed online, 3/4 player cash games and I started to consider where the best position to be seated is regarding having position on the regs or fish.

Letís take an example,
Seat 1 - open
Seat 2 - reg
Seat 3 - open
Seat 4 - fish
Seat 5 - open

Where do you sit and why?

How good or aggressive is the reg? If he will stay out of your way then seat 5 is best, the better and more aggro he is the better seat 3 becomes.

Yeah villain is pretty good/agro. Will definitely 3b wide and can overbet turns/rivers postflop etc.
The situation that got me questioning this is:
BTN - reg
SB - hero
BB - fish

BTN raises, and I found myself folding a lot more than I would have liked, even when we do flat we are OOP the entire hand, and if we 3b the BB folds.
So felt like 1/3 of the time I'm missing action.

In the opposite situation, if:
BTN - fish
SB - hero
BB - reg

we can then 3b the SB wider to get HU with the fish. Even when the hand goes 3 ways, the reg may not get too out of line when the fish has still to act behind them.
And when the BTN folds - we can overfold the SB and give up some equity and not worry too much about it.
