      Full Tilt - $0.05 NL - Holdem - 9 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      CO: $5.00
      BTN: $7.79
      SB: $5.18
      BB: $3.74
      UTG: $5.28
      Hero (UTG+1): $5.07
      MP: $5.07
      MP+1: $6.36
      LP: $4.27

      SB posts SB $0.02, BB posts BB $0.05

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero has A:heart: K:heart:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.20, fold, fold, LP calls $0.20, fold, fold, SB raises to $0.90, fold, Hero raises to $2.00

      Raising to $2 seemed stupid the second I clicked the raise button.
      Should I raise more? Less? Call? Shove?

      His messed up 3bet kinda ruined my play!

      I think I should just call and play post flop?

      As played, can I fold to an all-in?

      Hello Yeodan,

      Basically it depends a lot on the opponent, if his 3bet is really wider then going broke could be an option. Although taking into account that you didn't say much about him I might even prefer just folding while at the best we might get a coinflip but we could as well be far behind.

      And basically as you 4bet, you can't really fold as it was your plan to go broke with the 4bet and already putting to much in. And my 4bet size might at some spots even be all-in directly.

      Best regards.
