      Pacific Poker - $0.20 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      UTG: $7.59
      UTG+1: $20.56
      MP: $14.91
      MP+1: $10.25
      CO: $18.81
      BTN: $18.24
      SB: $21.84
      Hero (BB): $42.35

      SB posts SB $0.10, Hero posts BB $0.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.30) Hero has K:heart: A:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.60, fold, SB raises to $2.00, Hero calls $1.80, fold

      Flop: ($4.60, 2 players) 7:club: 6:club: 8:heart:
      SB bets $2.30, fold



      Player on SB likes 3 bet light from blinds. He does it with hands like KTo etc. At this moment I don't have access to my notes about this player but as I said he does it a little light. Stealer is a player with steal stats 35% and fold to 3bet 75% so it huge probability that he will fold.
      I didn't want to 4b because his respond would be fold or shove.
      Is it ok to play AKo in this way? What can we do on the flop?

      Hello BGawli,

      Wouldn't say that the 3bet is very high here. Most likely he just at some point is 3betting looser. Especially if you even play this hand you should also fight back against him.

      But with the reads of him 3betting light I would rather just 4b/fold myself. :)

      Best Regards.

      why do you want to play 4b/fold? Could you explain me why?
      I checked one more time my notes about this player and:
      From blinds:
      - 3b to $2 with 66, KTo, AKo
      - 3b to $1.9 with AA
      Probably he 3b a little smaller with premium hands...

      when we 4b, don't we isolate ourself from better hands?
      don't we have to call his shove because we are pot committed?

      when can we consider calling? why 4b>calling in this situation?
      I'm wondering because calling is also some kind of fight against him....

      Because he has a wide 3betting range? We turning our hand into bluff? And at the same time if we get even called we might get get called from worse if he is a bad player.

      Why should we be pot committed? Please explain me?

      If you call then why do you fold this flop? Do you think it hits hardly his 3betting range or what you hoping with your call? Oh lets hit an ace or king if not then just fold?

      because we have correct equity to call his shove...

      equity win tie pots won pots tied
      Hand 0: 38.824% 18.14% 20.68% 78295380 89232168.00 { AKo }
      Hand 1: 61.176% 40.50% 20.68% 174740892 89232168.00 { QQ+, AKs, AKo }

      Pot equity: 38%

      6%(3B)-100%
      x- 67%(Fold To 4B)

      so he will continue action with 2% of range... QQ+, AKs/o is 2.7% so probably this range would be correct...

      hehe it was my plan :) lets hit an ace or king if not then fold. This is it! Is it horrible plan?

      Equity preflop? We ain't talking about equity preflop, we rather talking about implied odds and how we going to play postflop. Either his range is polarized or depolarized, what kind of range he is 3betting. What kind of boards we fighting back and what kind of boards hit his 3betting range hardly what not.

      probably I don't pay attention to this stuff. I can not answer you question and I don't know.
