      Hero (SB): $3.61
      BB: $4.69
      UTG: $4.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is SB with A :heart: K :club:
      2 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.02, 2 folds, MP3 calls $0.02, CO raises to $0.13, 1 fold, Hero raises to $0.42, 3 folds, CO raises to $1.04, Hero calls $0.62

      Flop: ($2.14) T :spade: 4 :heart: 6 :heart: (2 players)

      Turn: ($2.14) 8 :heart: (2 players)

      River: ($2.14) 3 :club: (2 players)

      Is calling an option here? Or do we pretty much have to 3bet? When we 3bet and he shoves, do we have to call? We have to call 31BB to win 83BB, so we need 38% equity right? Vs. a range of QQ+, AKs we only have 33%, so can we find a fold vs. his short stack?

      Hello jdnismo,

      Well, I don't like calling that much. For the given reason that AKo ain't gonna be very good in multiway pot and most likely we are going to play in multiway pot. So therefore rather against his stack just 3bet and get it in.

      Best regards.
