      i'm kind of loose (something like 18 16), and I 4bet/fold quite often. I wanted to 4bet to something like x2-2.5 his 3bet to balance 4bet/call and 4bet/fold but I must have miscalculated lol.
      meh, I think both pushing and folding are ok but i wanna hear your opinion

      I don't know your sample size but if I remember correctly you need > 5% 3 bet to make it profitable to call / 4bet with AKo. But it is close and so it is probably ok to do once in a while. and once you 4bet you cant really fold anymore with AK

      If you have been really active then I like your play. Sb would very often 3-bet/fold and he would likely get all-in also JJ/QQ/AK against that you´re flipping
      I wanted to 4bet to something like x2-2.5 his 3bet to balance 4bet/call and 4bet/fold but I must have miscalculated lol.
      - yeah I´d prefer making it 16$ to give impression he has fold equity if he shoves
      Once you 4-bet you can´t fold any more. So it is either 4-bet/call pf or just flatting his raise ip
