      He is prety thing . And all he`s range crush AK. only thing you can hope is he has AK.
      or coin flip. So going broke whit AK is not best way you can play pre-flop against this player.

      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 39.78% 23.66% 16.13% AsKc
      BU 60.22% 44.09% 16.13% JJ+, AKs, AKo

      Hello clandestineAl,

      Against BU 3bet rather fold it. :) Never-ever Call, you ain't gonna play the hand profitable in this case. Even shipping preflop should be better if we expect the opponent to 3bet light. We will be playing OOP postflop and will be hard for us to extract value from him even if we do hit and we can't be sure that we even get paid.

      Best regards.
