      he is a regular ,playing 4 tables at the same time.
      if he is unknown,I go all in without hesitation,but against regulars,I wonder if I should choose call or not.
      I go on tilt if I lose big after I win little by little.
      is it something you cannot avoid,right?

      I dont think it's a standard 4bet/broke at all, SB vs UTG, also being a bit deeper.
      If you think there could be bluffs in his 3bet range here, then 4bet/fold is an option. I dont like calling preflop, if we dont hit we cant really play it, if we hit, we wont get paid off very often.
      I think I'd consider folding, and wait for a better spot.

      If you play AK against AK,QQ+ in the equiLab you get 39.59% equity before the flop. So against an opponent with 100BB you could argue that calling an AI can't be a big mistake.
      But I do agree with pcf, since you are UTG your opponents shoving range should be tight, so I would fold in your case. I would call from MP3 i guess, and if the opponent was the one that made the 4bet against me I would shove AK, because I would also generate some fold equity so that this move should be +EV then.

      Hello daisuke3823,

      Yeah, unfortunately a overplay from UTG to go broke with your hand vs SB. Doubt that you going to end up with profit here doing that. 4betting doesn't really make sense cause clearly we can't do it for value.

      Rather prefer just to leave the hand alone and avoid complicated postflop spots whilst you rarely know how good your pair does once you hit it.

      Best Regards.
