      BB's stats,

      Uploaded with

             Equity     Win     Tie
      UTG+1  40.80%  34.50%   6.30% { JJ+, AKs, AKo } -4bet range
      MP1    21.88%  13.51%   8.37% { AsKc }
      BB     37.32%  32.86%   4.47% { TT+, AQs+, AKo }

      Minimum equtiy needed is 35% (raked)


      Hero has to fold against 4bet?
      But, do you 3bet the UTG open raise?
      UTG open raise 11%(36) and I think AKo is ahead of this range.

      Essentially if this player is only 4bet or folding against your 3betting, you are 3betting (shockingly) as a bluff because you have to fold on his 4bet equity wise & logicwise

      So you have to determine if he is sometimes calling 3bets or not. Generally I will flat AKo, you can also fold pre if you think you are not confident playing Flop+Turn+River

      As played you showed me you have to fold on his 4bet so you really have to ask yourself questions on what you are doing sometimes and why

      Best regards,
