      I think it's close.

      I would like to point out that you have very little fold equity though, given villain's 4bet size. And you are 150bb deep.

      It could very well be a fold given these factors. But he seems really aggro from that small sample and if he does make this play with TT/AQ, folding AK here would end up being a huge mistake. You would have 49% equity against his 4bet/call range of TT+/AQ+, and you are a slight underdog if I only include TT+/AK (40%). I think your fold equity here is 20%-25%at the very most.

      i would never call this on NL5 without frther reads on villain. u are 150BB deep, u rarely get it in vs something else than KK+ here.

      def 3bet pre

      seeing his 4b sizing we have to assume he is a fish, fish dont 4b light pre, + u have no fold equity

      im actually surprised to see TT

      I think its standard and showing TT only proves that!

      Normally I don't agree with shoving AK in ring games with that stack. I know my folding equity was almost nonexistent ( and I don't expect and want a player like him to fold ) but when I shoved ( even having a small sample of hands ) I was pretty sure that we are flipping or that I am 60% to 70% favorite. Unluckily it was a flip which ended up badly for me. I think that if I could play the hand again, I would make the same play. Thank you for your answers guys !
