      UTG+2: $5.62 (281 bb)
      MP1: $1 (50 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K A
      UTG+2 raises to $0.08, 3 folds, Hero raises to $0.26, 3 folds, UTG+2 calls $0.18

      Flop: ($0.55) 3 Q 3 (2 players)
      UTG+2 bets $5.36 and is all-in, Hero folds

      I really hate AK, but I suppose its an easy fold here.
      Preflop am I folding here to a 4bet? I would have folded.

      Hello Resilence,

      Postflop of course it's an easy fold but preflop you have to ask what to do with the hand. Do you 3bet for value, do you plan to go broke? Or what's the purpose of the 3bet?

      Best Regards.

      how can I go broke with AK you tell me thats an overplay...
      I'm still following the BSS hand chart I have raise, and no I wouldn't go broke here, he seemed strong in his opening range.

      Well, 3betting there is fine but vs the UTG on whom we don't even have a good sample going broke might be overplayed. Also it might be even better to just Call it and keep his weaker hands in the play, we still have position. :)

      I never thought AKo was good to call with, but I'll definitely try to remember that, I need to play more hands maybe I'll learn something about AK then :P

      Of course then you also must understand a bit more postflop game and not just hope to hit. :D
