      AKs all-in is almost a coinflip against a normal open raiser from MP, about 58% equity.

      Against a pure 3bet range (TT+, AQs+,AKo+, and he's prob not 4betting with less than that) you're even a little behind with 45% equity.

      Personally I prefer to bet and call or 3bet and call with AK. Then you can re-evaluate on the flop.

      Hello Kaidz,

      The problem with the 3bet is that we don't even have a lot of stats on the opponent. So basically we are taking him as unknown. As you 3bet then basically it means you are doing it for value. But rather the question is maybe it's better to just Call and reevaluate it postflop while it could be the spot that you get just a flip and that's all.

      Best regards.
