      Hi Ferueda,

      Preflop: looks fine MP vs UTG (vs regish guy)

      Postflop: I'd most likely fold the river there with no reads.

      I doubt villain is shoving as a bluff and since he is PFR he can have AQ/66/QQ some A6/A7 and in the best case scenario for us we split versus AK.

      what do you thinkg about just calling with Ako to the utg raise?
      My thought was; if i raise here, my ak0 can't stand a cold 4bet OOP so i'd have to fold, and AKo is too good for folding so i just called.

      And in case of a squeez, what should i do? call?

      I think it's fine against a tight guy, whose UTG range is ~ AJ+ and pockets. We will get 4betted often, and it's not really what we want with AK.

      Against a squeeze it's all very dependent on the squeezer. If the guy loves squeezing and is stupid enough to overlook the fact that UTG is tight, I don't mind even shipping if UTG folds. Against an unknown I would tend to call.
