      Hello Nocco88,

      Fold it preflop, you will rarely get correct odds for calling for any draw nor you can't be sure if you will get paid there.

      Best Regards.

      First of all, thanks for the evaluation. Okay, I get it, but AKs is a strong hand, and i have position here. So the best play with AKo or AKs preflop is the fold when i don't have a decent hand history about the guy who is 3-betting me? And what if i have QQ here? Fold is the best option again?

      As you see the 3bet is already pretty big there and by hoping just to Call and hope to hit we wont play so profitable the hand. :) Especially with AKs, even with QQ we might prefer to fold vs bigger raise since at the best we may see there AK or something similar.

      And what would you do on the flop which is already $4,15 and we have overpair with QQ? He bets like $3,50.
