      Hello,

      Preflop: I thought about folding this hand, cause his ft3b is 0. Should I just call his raise instead of folding/3bet?
      Postflop: Anyway I ended up 3bet him because he doesn't have much sample. He's pretty much aggressive and the flop doesn't look too good, should I just ch/f?

      Thanks,
      cpers

      Hello cpers,

      Preflop: Do you think it's a great idea to play OOP with AK and being in bigger pot. Also what's your plan if the guy 4bets you?

      As played
      Postflop: What about him folding to CBs? Of course we could CB here but CBetting just wont work much cause we can't represent much with it.

      Best Regards.

      :f_biggrin: I never think about this, I mostly auto-3bet AK. So it's a fold here, right? There's no point to call, since it's hard to know whether we're ahead/dominated or not with our AK if we don't 3bet here.

      That's the problem when you 3bet there. :P If he is rather tight opponent and which his PFR could tell us and also W$SD then we might even consider folding to the 3bet cause at the best it's a flip while we don't know if he goes broke with worse Ax hands.

      Plus just take a look at his open-raise size.
