      I know I'm probablly behind MPs range, but I call the 4bet to make the fish call as well. Flop is standard.

      What is MP's opening range? If he is tighter than 15% in this position, then flat AKs.

      Your options after 3betting are to fold and to shove. I don't think calling is ever a good idea here, we want BB to fold. Given that he's a calling station I think he flats the 4bet when you flat it too. I will be very happy to have BB fold his JJ or TT or AK/QQ even.

      It's just way too expensive to call. If he makes it like 4$ or maybe even $4.50, maybe I might find a call.

      And also, if you cannot 5bet AK vs MP's 4bet profitably, then you should probably avoid 3beting it in the first place.
