      i usually dont call 3bets with AKo OOP, but this time i decided to take shot but i dont feel comfortablle that way so still its much better to 4bet/fold imo.

      cant really fold top two pair on the flop can i? and i cant only call as it may give him free turn so only way is to raise and get it in although i dont think he will call us off with AQ/AJ but still its a 3bet pot and top two is one of the best cases for us, no?

      Hello nktns,

      Preflop: Yeah, I'd even may consider just folding AKo against that kind of opponent, he is often doing the raise there for value, and likely we get at best case a coinflip. Also I don't think that we are getting paid of that often for example if we hit our Ace and he has JJ. Rather prefer to get it in or just fold it being OOP.

      As played
      Flop: I like the plan of Check/Raise, since Betting ourself will likely just make worse to fold while he still could CBet into us.

      Best regards.
