      fastforward again.

      interesting spot which seems like a gray area for me. i can't call OOP. if i cold 4bet i probably don't know how to play vs MP shove.

      BU is 27/27 over 35 hands and has 3bet a few times already. is this standard?

      Party, $0.05/$0.10 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      Hero (BB): $10 (100 bb)
      SB: $8.19 (81.9 bb)
      UTG: $10 (100 bb)
      MP: $10.32 (103.2 bb)
      BTN: $27.98 (279.8 bb)
      CO: $6.69 (66.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.30, CO folds, BTN raises to $1, SB folds, Hero raises to $2.60, MP folds, BTN raises to $27.98 and is all-in, Hero calls $7.40 and is all-in

      Flop: ($20.35) 7 8 5 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($20.35) K (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($20.35) 9 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      Results:
      $20.35 pot ($1.00 rake)
      Final Board: 7 8 5 K 9
      Hero showed A K and won $19.35 ($9.35 net)
      BTN showed Q Q and lost (-$10 net)

      Hi DrDunne,

      Preflop: After we 4-bet it becomes an easy (somewhat) math question.

      Pot odds we get: 36%
      Equity vs QQ+,AKs,AKo: 42%
      Equity vs QQ+,AKs: 38%
      Equity vs QQ+: 35%

      What range do you think villain can shove?

      I'd say at least QQ+, AKs.

      So our profit comes from their folds preflop and when he shoves we'll be around break even.

      you say "at least", but should i not be thinking about my perceived range which is super strong? in which case he probably isn't going broke with much less than this..

      Yeh, I mostly said at least because that doesn't include AKo and sometimes JJ.
