      Hi Kirezafirov,

      Is there a particular reason as to why we only have 66 BBs? Do you normally play a mid stack strategy?

      Even 100 BB deep here I do not like calling the 3-bet with AKo. We should 4-bet here to isolate the MP fish.

      As played I don't like calling UTGs 4-bet as he is rarely ever bluffing there and most of his range is on the stronger side. So if you like your hand, especially 66 BB go with it there. Your AKo will rarely hit the flop and you are committing 25% of your stack with the call already.

      As played why just call the flop and leave $6 behind in a pot of 23. Simply shove the flop and go with your NFD.
