      Villains unknown,

      Decided to respect UTG Raise so call, I was then split between whether to 4Bet or Call X(

      On Flop, Villains bet was weak so decided to Call and re-evaluate on the turn. Should I have Raised to $2~ to take the pot down and find out where I was?

      As played, I was tempted to put a small bet on the River to get a little value from 99/TT which could be possible?

      Hi.

      Its a co raiser not a utg raiser. If u want to respect his raise u should just fold xD .

      I think its played fine. Prefer 3betting from sb especially when his open is 4bb.

      Well, seems I posted wrong hand lol :D

      This is the hand that my comments go with :facepalm:

      On second thoughts, judging by his stake I should Assume he is fish and go broke or at least 4b?

      Hi.

      The avg fish is more passive so i think his squeeze range here shuld be stronger which makes me less inclined to go broke. And this is nl5 and from what i rmb abt the nanostakes people just go broke woth a really strong range.

      I agree with your call. Postflop is fine to me.

      Does this not contradict where you said to 4bet and go broke with AK pre @ NL5 - BTN with AKo ? Is there much of a difference or?

      Theres a huge diff.

      1. Starting positions matter. Ranges are wider in late positions
      2. Jj plays better than AK postflop and we can set mine vs higher pairs
      3. Ako has better equity preflop vs a tight range, since having the a and k reduces likelohood of facing aa and kk.
