      Should I call ?

      On play, there was an accident so I had to play in a hurry.

      Now I think I should call because he min-raise.

      Against most opponents we're happy to go all in with AK preflop. He will have position on you after the flop, so calling is really bad, but unless we have specific reads that he only goes all in with AA and KK preflop, we can't fold such a strong hand and should just raise him some more and hope to get all the chips in the middle before the flop.

      Hello newsat,

      As you decided to 3bet then rather just shove over his min-raise. Calling the 4bet doesn't make sense at all.

      Best regards.
