      Hey,

      Is it OK to 4bet/fold AK in this spot? Vs many nitregs I fold directly to the 3bet here but I saw he 3bets 7% vs MP open so it was time to fight back here. His w$sd on the other hand is 63% so I think he's only going broke KK+ and only some combo's QQ/AK

      Hey,

      No its not. The villain in question here looks decently aggressive, this means he can have lots of hands that we beat or share decent equity vs. JJ for example we share good equity and sufficient equity once we have 4bet.

      If we think that he is 3bet bluffing alot but not 5bet bluffing alot then we can just call the 3bet, we dominate alot of his 3bet bluffing range such as A3s, K10o etc.

      Learned something new.Normally I was never calling 3bets whilst being OOP, I thought there was no value in it :) . Seems like a good opportunity here indeed but I have to float now and then or check/R bluff.
