      Hi Hellias,

      Preflop: Considering their higher 3-bet %s (i'm assuming over a bigger sample) we should just 5-bet and go with the hand preflop.

      Calling here and missing often is not ideal especially since we have to put in about 1/5 of the stack.

      AQ preflop could be a fold but AKs should be a shove.

      BTW, when replying to hands that have been evaluated please click the "advise judge to take another look" button once you are done with your reply (and require us to take another look).
