      Would you make a contibet here?
      By betting 4$ I have to call any shove.
      Aanty thought I should check.
      And thanks Aanty for good session. Learned a lot why I shouldn´t call minbets and how to play aggressively^^

      I think this is a tough spot. I don't see SB folding a lot here, but I'd also shove. The reason is that you are getting pretty good pot odds, you have outs against most of his hands, you may have the best hand (not too likely, but who knows) and you protect your premium hands (AA/KK) as you play AK the same here.
