      CO: 15/15/inf/17 41 hands

      BU: 72/16/3.0/20 25 hands

      VP/PF/AF/WTSD

      Stacks:
      UTG ($14.02)
      CO ($10)
      BTN ($5.40)
      viccini (SB) ($14.34)
      BB ($10.70)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 5 players) viccini is SB K:diamond: A:spade:
      1 fold, CO raises to $0.35, BTN calls $0.35, viccini raises to $1.40, 1 fold, CO raises to $2.50, BTN folds, $1.1 to viccini ($12.94)?

      I doubled up some times at this table but decided to keep playing mainly cause of the BU.

      I decided to 3bet here mainly cause of the BU as well. I think he'll call me with many crap hands but unfortunally CO 4bets me and BU folds. What do I do now? Push? Call? I called but I don't think it's the best option.

      viccini checks, CO bets $2.90, viccini folds

      Final Pot: $8.35

      CO wins $8.08 (net +$2.68)

      BTN lost $0.35
      viccini lost $2.50


      Post flop I just xf but I might have folded the best hand. How would you play this hand? (as I doubled up it became a BSS hand but I'm sure you can judge it as well ;) )

      thx in advance!

      Hello,

      Calling is definitly the worst play on his 4bet due the fact you are OOP, will miss a lot of times with your AK and will not stack QQ-TT if you hit a king or ace

      Now the question is if he bets this big with AK/JJ and will fold to a check/shove. Basically it wouldn't hurt to check/shove sometimes as he will be puking with those hands + you block AA/KK & QQ by 50%

      Sometimes it is also better to flat Pre and lead any Kxx/Axx board because you dont want to get into 4bet spots with CO + BU might be loose but sometimes he is just folding to 3bets

      Ok. And should I shove 100bbs here or just fold to the 4bet (assuming I 3betted instead of flating)?

      I think this was really the best option. Next time I'll think about flating instead of raising (at least with 100bb. With 40bb 3bet/shove would be ok, right?)

      thx!!

      if you get 4bet after you sqz with AKo it is best to:

      Shove >>>>> Fold >>>>> Call

      Hope it make sense

      Best regards,

      Yeah, it makes sense! Actually I shouldn't 3bet with AK if I'm not willing to go broke with it after a 4bet, right?

      thx again!
