      Preflop: Hero is MP with A K
      Hero raises to $0.60, CO folds, BTN raises to $1.70, 2 folds, Hero raises to $4, BTN calls $2.30

      Flop: ($8.30) Q 5 J (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Turn: ($8.30) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $4.20, Hero calls $4.20

      River: ($16.70) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $12.50, Hero folds

      Results:
      $16.70 pot ($0.83 rake)
      Final Board: Q 5 J A A
      Hero mucked A K and lost (-$8.20 net)
      BTN mucked and won $15.87 ($7.67 net)


      Villain: VP 32 / PFR 24 / Hands 25 (first 3-bet)

      Should we call the river? I assumed hes range for calling 4-bet would be pretty much AQ, QQ, JJ, AK, AJ so I think we are mostly beat there, since we have AK so its less likely to be a split pot.

      Hello XdzhX,

      Welcome to the English NL Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future. I hope that with our help you can improve your play and as well move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      Preflop: Not a great idea to 4bet in first place here most likely. Or what's the idea behind it. Do plan to go broke? Are you turning your hand into bluff?

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to do I guess, we can't lay down on the turn but meanwhile I assume his Check-behind range is mainly a trap and we don't beat there that much on the river.

      Best Regards.
