      I definitely think folding is too week here. I would be inclined to 4b. Many 3Bs won't stand up to a 4b

      Hey Veriz,

      Could you explain why you would fold there with a strong hand like AKs rather than 4-bet? Would you prefer to 4b it versus just one villain so you don't have to worry about the second villain behind you?

      AKs ain't that strong vs his 3betting range unless he is a maniac. Try for example open equilab and put a realistic 3betting range and see how your hand does.
