      0,15/0,25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.105 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A:spade: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,75, BU calls $0,75, SB folds, BB raises to $3,15, Hero raises to $7,75, BU folds, BB calls $4,60.

      Flop: ($16,40) J:heart: , 7:heart: , 2:spade: (2 players)
      BB bets $5,55, Hero raises to $21,75 (All-In), BB calls $13,15 (All-In), Hero gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Villain is very aggressive and why should he donk 1/3 potsize if he is strong since a c/r would commit me anyway.
      I thought i should have enough foldequity and also 6 outs against a pair so i shipped.
      If he checks on this flop should i just check behind?

      Turn: ($53,80) 6:spade:
      River: ($53,80) 9:club: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $53,80

      easy fold on flop you are only facing AJ-JJ+ even 10's have you beat, Let alone he could easily have KK QQ AA dont forget even loose fish get Aces. I wouldn't 4bet that smallish pre I would basically just shove or make a very commiting raise. Like 10$+. I really dont want to see flops with AK even if im in position since he has initiative he can donk any flop since its a 4bet pot. Overall, I really think just shoving pre works especially since ur facing a 49/19 fish.. Whats his 3bet% base on position you should also take not of that unless you dont have a decent HH sample on him.

      Very interesting line by BB. Problem is that he would not b/f there any pair and you have no backdoor flsuhdraws. If you think your AK is good enough then I think you can just call flop and shove any turn or check it down. he would b/c there anyway in draws and you would rather keep in hands like QT or AT that would b/f flop.

      Although folding there is also fine.

      best regards,

      @Heave112: 3B on BB is 13% over 134 hands. Samplesize is too low though...

      BB just wanted to be aggressive and wasn't thinking. He bet his 88 and hoped that i just have overcards and i could fold. After my ship he didn't think that i could have a better pair, he called in the last second since he couldn't let go of his Pair.
      Such players will always give you something like AK in this spot so it was my bad to raise when he thinks i have such a hand.
