      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:heart: , K:heart:
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0,35, Hero raises to $1,00, 2 folds, CO raises to $2,90, Hero calls $1,90.

      Flop: ($5,95) Q:diamond: , 5:diamond: , 2:diamond: (2 players)
      CO raises $7,85 (All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $5,95

      Shove it preflop? I don't like to shove AK IP so often, as lately, more than half of the regular just plays their AKs on 3bet or 2bet, not often 4bet/shove.

      If you aren't comfortable going all in after he 4bet, you should just call the original raise IMO. Calling a 4bet is bad because your stack size will be too small for any bluffs once the flop is dealt, and you'll only hit your ace or king 30% of the time.

      I think it's fine to go all in here as his stats don't indicate he's the nit that only goes all in with AA and KK. He seems aggressive enough for him to have AKo, QQ here some of the time and maybe 4bet bluff very occasionally also.

      Hello ragney,

      If you plan to 3bet him then do it properly, and just shove if he decides to 4bet you. Doesn't make sense to 3bet-bluff. Just Call then and play him postflop.

      Best regards.
