      Poker Stars, $0.02/$0.05 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 9 Players

      UTG+2: $5.70 (114 bb)
      Hero (MP1): $5 (100 bb)
      MP2: $5.75 (115 bb)
      MP3: $1.64 (32.8 bb)
      CO: $4.09 (81.8 bb)
      BTN: $5 (100 bb)
      SB: $5 (100 bb)
      BB: $5 (100 bb)
      UTG+1: $5 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with A:heart: K:heart:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0.20, MP2 folds, MP3 calls $0.20, CO folds, BTN raises to $0.80, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.60, MP3 folds

      Flop: ($1.87) A:diamond: Q:spade: 8:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $1.38, Hero calls $1.38

      Turn: ($4.63) J:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $2.82 and is all-in, Hero ???

      The opponent seems to be a regular, is a 19/19/4 (VPIP/PFR/AF)
      He has a high 3BET, so I put him on this Range: JJ+,AQs+,KQs,AQo+,KQo

      I decided to call his CBET, because he could make that with all of his range.


      But on the turn, it seems to be a very strong hand, so his range should be:

      JJ+,AQs+,AQo+

      Should I call this?

      I don't think there is anything you really beat here on the turn, AT is not making this move on you ever, nor KK after you call that flop. I think this is a spot where you should find a fold given the opponents stats (he'd have to be pretty fishy for it to be a call). Personally I think I might prefer 4b pre-flop since AKs has good equity and playing it out of position isn't easy.

      Do you always 4bet/shove AK on the PF?
      I don't like doing it with Ak and QQ, unless the opponoent is a fish.

      Hello Kony76,

      Preflop: Just telling me that he has a high 3bet frequency ain't gonna help out. :( Why? Cause I don't know the sample nor I don't know what you are taking as high, maybe 3%? But most likely calling ain't going to help you out here and instead if you really assume he is squeezing here light then 4bet instead.

      As played
      Postflop: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
