Known players:
MP2 = (3.82)
MP3 = (1.96)
CO (Hero) = (2.85)
BU = (2.00)
SB = (2.65)
BB = (2.46)
MP1 = (2.16)
Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
MP1 folds, MP2 calls 0.02, MP3 raises to 0.06, Hero calls 0.06, BU calls 0.06, SB folds, BB calls 0.04, MP2 folds.

Flop: (0.27) A, 4, 2 (4 players)
BB bets 0.10, MP3 raises to 0.40, Hero calls 0.40, BU folds, BB folds.

Turn: (1.17) A (2 players)
MP3 bets 0.62, Hero raises to 2.39(All-In), MP3 calls 0.88(All-In).

River: (5.06) 4 (2 players)

MP3 shows four of a kind, fours(4 4).Hero shows a full-house, aces full of fours(K A).MP3 wins with four of a kind, fours(4 4).

Opponent's stats over 60 hands:
VPIP / PFR / AF / CBET FLOP / WTSD
59 / 21 / 3.8 / 100 / 35

I thought he had an Ace and would call an all-in. Sets was a possibility but there were possible only 2 of them.
Actually, my flop call was bad too, don 't you think? (damn it, why i tend to destroy everything in a couple of hands?)

Do you have stats and stack sizes? To see what is your best play I would probably be looking at that

IMHO, I don't think KAo plays well multiway. If you think MP3 is raising with any Ax among other stuff, then you want to 3bet AK, both for value and to isolate. It would be different if you were last to act on the BB, for example, v. 1 stealer. But in this case you need to position yourself profitably for the postflop play, in particular if you think MP3 is very loose with his raising range.

After the flop not sure there is much you can do as he would probably do the same play with AQ, AJ, KK. But again, you would need stats here to put him on a range (btw, raising with 44 preflop doesnt particularly strikes me as passive, is he passive after the flop?)

You are right, i would not call him passive. Edited the 1st post.

Also is this right, given his PFR=20?

Board: A 4 2  A

Hero   62.19%  51.34%  10.85% { AsKh }
MP3    37.81%  26.96%  10.85% { 44, 22, A9s+, ATo+ }

Nice equity Could he play the same way pocket pairs like KK? You might want to add A4s considering a 20% raising range, however you are safe making it tighter I think.

Hello Erevos,

Preflop: I'd also rather advice to 3bet instead here than Call and play the hand in multiway pot.

As played
Postflop: As long the guy has also worse Ax hands hard to fold it here.

Best Regards.
