      Villain 44/31 over 16 hands. No sample but it already indicates smth. So I went for a raise ready to go all-in against his stack. Okish ? How you play here against full stack and unknown opponent ? --> I think in rush I can´t rly 3bet for value when he is rasing from position that early but I don´t want to play AK in a multiway pot so I don´t want to call either. Do you 3bet/fold ?

      Hello acceleration123,

      He ain't even fully stacked so therefore pretty standard to 3bet/Broke here. And that's true that we can't really 3bet/Broke in rush that easily against UTG range and if he is full stacked unless he is really that wide.

      Best regards.

      Yep, that´s the problem, so what´s our action then ? :D 3bet/fold x just folding ?

      You can still Call and play postflop against him. Because often times when I do 3bet with AK then mainly I do it for value unless I know more about the opponent then might even consider 3bet/Folding.

      Ye, but the problem is there are still so many players behind us and they´ll get pretty great odds to call with a bunch of different hands so I was even thinking if folding isn´t the best option.

      Not that I really mind, it's basically almost the same when we sometimes Call with AXs hands. You can still take AKs the same way and it's still possible even be far ahead with TP. They wont play very aggressively anyways their TP type of hands in multiway pot and it's rather easier to get away with the hand.
