      $25.00 No Limit Hold'em - 6 players -

      UTG: $46.96
      MP: $19.77
      CO: $48.43
      BTN: $50.77
      SB: $25.12
      Hero (BB): $38.20

      Pre Flop: ($0.37) Hero is BB with K :spade: A :spade:
      3 folds, BTN raises to $0.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $2.25, BTN raises to $5.25, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($10.62) J :diamond: J :heart: 7 :spade: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.31, Hero folds


      My question would be about preflop play. Being 150bb deep how would you play this? I decided to 3bet, but based on his stats, he hasnt called many 3bets so far, so there is not that much value in 3betting. If he 4bets, it's awkward, because I dont want to put in 150bb with AK, but maybe it's just too strong a hand to fold.
      Best option would be to call preflop, and have more space for postflop play?
      After getting 4betted, is it a viable option to call?

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: I would still 3bet it for value if I assume he ain't 4betting very loose. Otherwise if he 4bets a lot then will be difficult vs that kind of player who definitely will 4bet us being deep. Afterwards even being OOP it's going to be very difficult while his range right now is very low, might even safer to just fold it.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment, difficult to continue even here. As you see, even on such a board.

      Best Regards.
