      BTN: 72.5 BB
      SB: 218.5 BB
      Hero (BB): 192.7 BB
      UTG: 70.3 BB
      MP: 169.4 BB
      CO: 116.2 BB

      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:spade: K:spade:

      fold, fold, fold, BTN raises to 4 BB, SB raises to 14 BB, Hero calls 13 BB, BTN calls 10 BB

      Flop: (42 BB, 3 players) 9:diamond: 5:club: T:club:
      SB bets 204.5 BB and is all-in, fold, fold

      SB wins 39.9 BB

      123 hands on SB, 3bet 14%, 4bet 0, fold to 4bet after 3bet 0/1

      I didnt want to 4bet cold, because I wanted to play against his possibly weaker Ax, or Kx whih is a lot in his range.

      Should I 4bet? He already once didnt fold to 4bet, and we are deep, and I miss often the flop with AK. When I call I am IP, and he maybe folds Ax to 4bet.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: I like the call here, it keeps his range wide (it should be wider from trying to iso the fish). Plus you keep in the fish. With a 4-bet you isolate yourself vs the SB.

      Postflop: As played it's an easily fold.
