      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.50(BB) Replayer
      SB ($50)
      BB ($85.50)
      Hero ($76.80)
      UTG+1 ($36)
      CO ($50)
      BTN ($146)

      Dealt to Hero K:heart: A:diamond:

      Villain has 14,1% 3bet vs utg 13% (vs mp aswell, vs bu 19%)
      In late he is calling 13% and raising 16%

      Hero raises to $1.50, fold, fold, BTN raises to $5.25, fold, fold, [color=red]Hero raises to $11.50, BTN raises to $17.75,

      Hero ?
      This spot is a bit weird, if we have a look at his stats there should be only 6combinations of AA,KK (0.5%) and a significant number of 5bet bluffs (altough i dont know if he even knows 5bet bluff but according to his stats he should)

      now is there a better way to play this hand than 4bet/shove ?

      if you´re going to 4-bet I like shoving than folding
      Also you can just call pf and play postflop if you don´t want to get all-in AK pf where you´re likely not never gonna be ahead unless player is some kind of maniac

      there are many spots where i like to 4bet fold a hand like AQ cause of its many removals and its relatively poor equity against villains broke range.

      Usually AK is too strong for a 4bet fold, given the circumstances that i was utg and we had 150bb this mikght be a spot where it can be the best play. However not with a 4bet as small as the one i did, probably something like 12.75 would have made it impossible for him to 5bet bluff efficiently
