      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players


      SB: $10 (100 bb) 27/24/1.2/30.8/29/50 (3-Bet from SB 20%(5))
      BB: $5.46 (54.6 bb)
      MP: $15.49 (154.9 bb)
      CO: $10.93 (109.3 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $10 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with K A
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB raises to $1.10, BB folds, Hero raises to $10 and is all-in, SB folds

      Another AK pre-flop situation but I think this one is still easier. He is 3-Betting quite heavily, quite loose so I guess a shove here against this guy is fine.

      Another alternative could be to call and see the flop but I'll need to hit to take him down as he's so loose and passive he might just keep calling and hit something stupid and his WTSD is also high so he's likely to go till the river. So I thought its best to shove when I'm pretty confident I'm ahead against his pretty loose range.


      Results: $2.30 pot
      Hero mucked K A and won $2.30 ($1.20 net)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Don't like your shove at all! You don't even give him the opportunity to continue with loose range. He will just call with strong made hands. So I would make a normal 4bet as 2,5x.

      Best Regards.
