      470 hands, VPiP 25, PFr 19, 3bet 6, from BTN 3bet 2.
      in 3bet pots, cbet flop 4/5. turn 2/2, river 1/1

      I hate to get 3bet deep with AK. Should I fold preflop, flop, turn, or river?
      I was sure I lose from the start. I dont like even more when I call AK deep and I hit, and villian is betting. What do I expect to win against here? QQ, is not barreling so, KQ also playing very carefully so deep. I lose against KK, AA, JJ, and AK can also play aggresive here.

      Is it better to 4bet/ fold here? If I do so, I get the same problem when he calls my 4bet.

      Once I called this preflop, and hit on flop, does it make sense to fold any street here? I was wondering, why did I call preflop if I am going to fold later when I hit.

      Given starting positions, 4bet/folding doesnt achieve anything. just call and keep his worse hands and light 3bets in.

      as played, i completely agree with the way you played the hand. Your hand is not strong enough to raise and too weak to fold. So just Call call call
