      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25, $0.05 ante No Limit Hold'em Cash, 8 Players
      Poker Tools Powered By Holdem Manager - The Ultimate Poker Software Suite.

      MP3: $50.83 (203.3 bb)
      Hero (CO): $62.50 (250 bb)
      BTN: $50 (200 bb) 16/12/2.7k vpip/pfr/hands 3betBTNvCO: 6
      SB: $23.95 (95.8 bb) 16/13/1.1k vpip/pfr/hands cold4bet:2.9(35)
      BB: $9.46 (37.8 bb)
      UTG+2: $13.33 (53.3 bb)
      MP1: $121.97 (487.9 bb)
      MP2: $86.51 (346 bb)

      At that time I could not see the popup for cold4bet and I just made the decision based on positions, and took into account that SB knew that BTN 3bets light there, and so I decided to go with the hand.

      But now I think that this is an overplay from me, and the SB will never have a bluff there.

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A K
      4 folds, Hero raises to $0.80, BTN raises to $3.25, SB raises to $7, BB folds, Hero raises to $62.45 and is all-in, BTN folds, SB calls $16.90 and is all-in

      Flop: ($51.70) A T 6 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      Turn: ($51.70) 3 (2 players, 2 are all-in)
      River: ($51.70) 5 (2 players, 2 are all-in)

      I would likely not fold AKs. If it was UTG vs MP vs SB then SB very likely must have there QQ-AA, sometimes AK, that makes it more like fold, but here SB might 4-bet wider for value and have some Ax hands as seminbluff (for example AJ/AT he might easily 4-bet/fold rather than coldcall)

      best regards,

      Yes but this is a deep table. Now SB it is not deep, but what if he was deep?

      IF SB is as deep as us I would fold without any sort of information that tells us about his cold 4-bet range.

      As played even the shove here is a bit light. SB seems nitty and while this is a good spot to cold 4-bet in people just don't do it enough at these limits.
      Combine the fact that BTN can also have a hand (since he doesn't 3bet that much) and we aren't doing too great.

      As an exercise look at the fold equity that you need if villain never bluffs (look at a few different 4-bet/call ranges for him).
