      Hi W4terman,

      Preflop: Even against a fish I'd be happy to 4-bet AKs here for value.

      As played do you expect fold equity with our raise on the flop? Part of playing a draw aggressively is the fact that we want to have FE.

      Sure we have lot's of equity with the hand but FE also means we have more profitability long term.

      As played on turn just ship it. Why bet 3 with 1.49 left behind in a 11 pot? Do you really induce there when he has like no money left behind?
