      MP3: $28.86 (115.4 bb)
      CO: $145.80 (583.2 bb)
      BTN: $59.35 (237.4 bb) 17/5/2.3/4/138 vpip/pfr/af/3bet/hands
      SB: $25.40 (101.6 bb)
      Hero (BB): $62.50 (250 bb)

      UTG+2: $41.97 (167.9 bb)
      MP1: $63.52 (254.1 bb)
      MP2: $74.86 (299.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A A
      UTG+1 folds, UTG+2 raises to $0.75, MP1 calls $0.75, 2 folds, CO calls $0.75, BTN raises to $3.50, SB folds, Hero raises to $7.70, 3 folds, BTN calls $4.20

      Flop: ($18.20) K 5 9 (2 players)
      Hero bets $9.30, BTN folds

      Can I ever check in this spot? I was thinking that this is a 4bet pot, and he rarely has flush draws in his range especially because I have the A of :spade: . So by checking I give him the opportunity to bluff or to call me lite on later streets, maybe with QQ or JJ.

      Hi Cleo,

      I'd say his range is TT-QQ and AK. AK is still 6 combos and usually QQ-TT don't give us much money anyway.

      Considering that we are deep and want to get max value form AK I think that our bet is fine.
