      I'm mainly interested in my preflop decision to 3b/fold here. From my stats for UTG had a static open raising range so I expected to get called by worse here but never 4b. Also I did not want to have to play a MWP OOP w/o the initiative but AKo is too strong a hand to fold IMO. Also a lot of the time I think that I take this hand down preflop and pick up all the dead money out there.

      PartyGaming - $0.04 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: $4.40
      SB: $4.00
      Hero (BB): $4.00
      UTG: $4.13 36/30/2/13/17/54 hands - LP IMO
      MP: $6.07 50/0/6/0/18/20 hands - had shown to be LAG
      CO: $4.24 23/18/2/5/14 - LP/TAG mix TAG pre/f but post/f stats seem passive

      SB posts SB $0.02, Hero posts BB $0.04

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.06) Hero has A:spade: K:heart:

      UTG raises to $0.12, MP calls $0.12, CO calls $0.12, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.62, fold, MP calls $0.50, fold

      Flop: ($1.50, 2 players) 7:spade: 5:heart: 3:club:
      Hero checks, MP bets $0.71, fold

      MP wins $1.43

      Hello muel294,

      Pretty standard, no point to CB in those spots whilst his calling range will very often have PPs which you wont make to fold that easily and it's expensive.

      Best Regards.
