      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 5 Players


      Hero (SB): $25.85 (103.4 bb) 38/34/0.6/25.0/33/33
      BB: $27.32 (109.3 bb)
      MP: $25 (100 bb)
      CO: $24.65 (98.6 bb)
      BTN: $18.46 (73.8 bb) 48/13/1.4/0.0/50/31

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A Q
      2 folds, BTN raises to $0.75, Hero raises to $2.25, BB folds, BTN raises to $3.75, Hero calls $1.50

      I usually don't call 4-Bets but this one was just too low.

      Flop: ($7.75) 5 7 A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $14.71 and is all-in, Hero calls $14.71

      I should have donked here to protect against flush and straight draws. Then he overbets with his shove which I think is complete crap cause no made hand forms here. I put him on draws or weaker ace and go ahead and call.

      Turn: ($37.17) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($37.17) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Hello maheepsangari,

      Preflop: Doesn't make sense to Call the 4bet. :) Either 5bet and get it in or just fold it vs his stack. Didn't you go for 3bet-value preflop?

      As played
      Postflop: Donking doesn't make sense, you are just making worse hands to fold, rather let him CB. How many draws does he have in his 4betting range?

      Best Regards.

      You don't mind me calling his shove on the flop? Thats what I felt like I did fishy here.

      I wouldn't be planning to fold there. He could easily even shove for just fold equity. If he really did shove with AK like that then really bad move from him, he ain't gaining value from a lot worse. :D
