      Hello,

      Preflop I'd make it 13bb.
      When MP 4bets I think we can fold here with AKo, also having a player behind.

      Why would you bet 13BB IP? In platinium videos in pokerstrategy that I watched, people 3bet 11BB, because they are IP, and 13BB if they are OOP.
      Especially with AK, 3bet 13BB IP, who do we expect to call? Especially AQ, AJ rarelly call OOP. I think that way we isolated against very good hand.

      Hello,

      We play Nl10 where people tend to be fishier and don't really care about sizings so I see nothing wrong in making it bigger and building up the pot.
