      oponent is a big fish

      but as far as my experience goes minraise/min4bets from big fish is usually AA or KK

      im asking u guys how to react with AK in those situations where their range is QQ+ AK, becuz pre vs that we only got 38.8% equity

      strategy says yh push ai but shud we be doing that when the 4bet range is only that? and we clear losers?

      How do you know that his 4bet range is only AK and QQ+? Fish might think that AJ is nuts and would do it the same way, against fish id 5bet to 3-3.50$, well played though

      Fish are NOT making 4 or 5-bets with AJ. They want to see the flop and play for stacks, if they hit their A (or J). Remember that.

      Even on NL10, usually 4-bet is KK+, depends a little on your opponent.

      his min 4bet in this situation is the nuts.
      after he min 4bet, you 5bet and he shoves, he's got QQ+ here almost always.

      small 4-bet is always suspicious, so you can consider raise/folding AK (especially consider he raised UTG), if he has 4-bet you before then I would prefer just shoving or calling to see flop and then folding to big bet postflop.

      best regards,
