      I only 4-bet (so shove) a villain with AK if I got a read on him. Without stats this one is a fold for me.

      Hi carrapa,

      well for me this is not just automatic fold. I would say that without reads i am shoving vs SB. When we 3 bet SB here we already invested 9BB.

      With SB range AQ+, 99+ we are coin flipping so for me calling shove is profitable.

      In this particular hand without reads i would just go broke after villains 4bet.

      Lets wait also what veriz think :f_biggrin:

      Hello carrapa,

      Well, do you know the SB here? What kind of opponent are we against. Vs some we might fold, vs some we might go broke. :) There can be picked different lines. So will wait for some information.

      Also if you 4bet then I would still do a bit bigger 2,5x. :) But of course blind-vs-blind fight we can consider even playing for the stacks if we see him being more aggressive side.

      Best Regards.
