      $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Holdem
      6 Players

      Stacks:
      UTG ($9.75)
      UTG+1 ($16.36)
      CO ($10.86)
      Hero (BTN) ($10.15)
      SB ($17.84)
      BB ($17.30)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) Hero is BTN K:diamond: A:club:
      UTG raises to $0.30, UTG+1 calls $0.30, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.20, SB goes all-in $17.84, 1 fold, UTG folds, UTG+1 folds, Hero ???

      1) Wouldn't he 3-bet to like ~4$ with Aces and wait for a donkey call or shove from my part where he can just call, by not scaring me off with shoving himself? Against KK I still have some chances, and against everything else I have a normal race, right? So is it a standard call then?

      2) What should I do, if he DID 3-bet to ~4$?

      Hello wlcKeD,

      Even 3betting is somewhat close here while UTG range is pretty tight and often he will continue with better hands. Although as you went for a 3bet then I wouldn't Call his shove. He may still do that even with KK/AA or whatsoever. And definitely doesn't have a very weak hand here unless we have some better reads. At the best we might get a flip. Therefore just give up the hand.

      Best regards.

      Isn't it too nitty to JUST call here? Giving a chance for more players to come to the pot with variuos drawy hands, even the blinds? Or also giving a chance for someone to squeeze with a weaker hand than mines and force me out of the pot (which I suppose you recommened to fold pref if someones squeezes like that after I just call with AK)? I thought it's a clear raise here with my AK ...

      Unless you tell me the opponents you are against it's hard to say what I would take here. If you are against a nit then there is no way I am going to 3bet it for value. Rather just as a bluff. And you have only 2 opponents behind you.

      Would you rather go broke vs JJ+ range or play postflop in multiway pot? Where you have choices as well to decide what actions you gonna take.

      And the moral of that is - I should finally get a HUD :D am I right? ;)

      Definitely, it seems that you are in the face where you might need add something into the play. Try maybe out PokerStrategy Elephant which is for free. :) And we can bring a whole new system into play with stats. If you even have problems installing it I can always help you.
