      Hello EdVardenis,

      Preflop: I don't like that much your 3bet against UTG range unless you can prove me that he is doing a lot of raises from UTG. We are practically just isolating ourselves against better hands. As played I don't like the Call either. :( If you want to continue then rather get it in than Call it.

      As played
      Postflop: Call the turn and keep weaker hands/PPs in the play. No point to raise, with raising you are just making worse hands to fold.

      Best regards.

      I agree that I played it bad, but what I mean, am I able even to cal the turn? Cuz I dont think that he is betting here KK, otherwise I am beaten or splitting in best case scenario

      You called preflop with AK to get a TPTK, and you have it. Besides you're in a 4bet pot, you can't really fold with TPTK.

      He could do that with a PP or a set with QQ or AA that's slowplaying.

      Board: Qs Tc Ah 8h
      Dead:

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 58.971% 42.46% 16.51% 3195 1242.00 { AKo }
      Hand 1: 41.029% 24.52% 16.51% 1845 1242.00 { JJ+, AKs, AKo }

      Not bad equity.

      He is not 4beting PF w JJ. Plus, I guess he understands that his KK is beaten by all the hands in my range, I mean AA, QQ, AK and he just spliting w KK.

      if he opens like 7% from UTG and 3bets like 1% then u definitely beat and hes slowplayng his monster, but if he's something like 15% and 3bet 7% or more I would call down, cause he can even 4bet bluff, it was x2.5 4bet so he knows proper 4bet size, and he checks the flop cause it hits your range hardly, but you show weakness not betting so he could try to steal that pot.
