      If those three guys you're talking about are better than you it looks like you should be table-selecting more. It is probably EV- to play with them, even with AK.

      Hello Gonchan,

      Seems to be pretty standard, not much you could have done there. Just got unlucky facing such a hand. :D Make a note of his 4bet-call.

      To induce bluffs we could sometimes even Check behind on the flop to get called from weaker PPs or even bluff.

      Best Regards.
