      Poker Stars, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      BTN: $17.34 (173.4 bb)
      SB: $15.95 (159.5 bb)
      BB: $10.15 (101.5 bb)
      UTG+1: $9.63 (96.3 bb) 18/16/0%3b (45h)
      UTG+2: $18.50 (185 bb)
      MP1: $10.67 (106.7 bb) unknown
      Hero (MP2): $13.07 (130.7 bb)
      MP3: $10.63 (106.3 bb)
      CO: $11.31 (113.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A A
      UTG+1 raises to $0.20, UTG+2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.80, Hero raises to $2.20, 5 folds, UTG+1 calls $2, MP1 calls $1.40

      Flop: ($6.75) 9 K 4 (3 players)
      UTG+1 checks, MP1 checks, Hero bets $3.20, UTG+1 calls $3.20, MP1 raises to $8.47, Hero raises to $10.87 and is all-in, UTG+1 calls $4.23 and is all-in

      Turn: ($31.12) J (3 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($31.12) 2 (3 players, 2 are all-in)

      $31.12 pot ($1.40 rake)
      Final Board: 9 K 4 J 2
      UTG+1 showed K K and won $27.73 ($18.10 net)
      MP1 showed K A and lost (-$10.67 net)
      Hero showed A A and won $1.99 (-$8.68 net)

      Can I / should I get away here? Given UTG1's TAG-ish stats I think his range for flatting my cold 4bet OOP is like KK exactly and he's probably trapping on the flop. I just felt committed. Or am I being too results orientated?

      The cold call from UTG is scary, but sometimes he's doing this with JJ/QQ and AK? It's unlikely I suppose, it's a very difficult spot. On the flop I think after UTG flats (which he is doing only with AK,KK,AA) and MP1 reraises we could possibly find a fold, since it is unlikely that both have AK since we have 2 aces (or another AA) so one of these guys has the nuts a lot of the time. I don't know if I could do it though.

      I can´t see how you can get away in 4-bet pot. bet/shove would be there more standard spot because of the pot odds- I think you may easily see there AK as often as sets

      best regards,
