      he's 28/20 3b=4 wts=28 af=1.4 over 504 hands.

      Would you ever consider folding AK IP vs a V. that 3bets 4% of his hands? We fare around 45% vs that range (if it's pure value obv), but perhaps having position can give us the lead...?

      well yeah I've got two overs and a bdfd, but he's likely to be 3betting solely his value range. How do my outs look against top 4-5% of holdings?

      that aside, I do agree I may be folding to too many cbets in these BTNvsblinds spots. But better do that, than find yourself in marginal spots where you have no idea what to do.

      I think when you raise from MP his 3bet range is even stronger and i tend to fold it pf because at best you have a coinflip, and if you call and call this flop you will get yourself in tricky situation because his only hand that is not continuing is AK without a draw if you dont hit A or K so agree with the fold saves you some trouble.

      yeah, I agree.

      I didn't realize this was an MP vs BB spot not a BTN vs BB spot. As you said it makes it a bit easier.

      Hello inlovewithamsterdam,

      Fold the hand right preflop. :) You ain't gonna play the hand profitable by calling like this. 4% ain't that much, most likely only strong made hands.

      Best regards.
