      BTN: $153.25 (306.5 bb)
      SB: $77.39 (154.8 bb)
      BB: $71.96 (143.9 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $72.51 (145 bb)
      MP: $50.78 (101.6 bb)
      CO: $58.63 (117.3 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with K A
      Hero raises to $1.50, 2 folds, BTN raises to $4.50, SB folds, BB calls $4, Hero raises to $11.25, 2 folds

      $13.75 pot
      Hero mucked K A and won $13.75 ($9.25 net)

      BU: VPIP: 22, PFR: 19, 3B: 4, AF: 2,3, Hands: 2454
      3Bet as BU: 5,4
      Fold to 4Bet: 67 (3)
      He's pretty nitty for a 6max when it comes to 3Bet+ actions.

      BB: VPIP: 26, PFR: 14, 3B: 8, AF: 1,8, Hands: 43

      I didn't feel like flatting in a sandwich with AKo, but I thought a fold would have been too weak, after all I'm not playing FR anymore.
      Was this an ok spot to do this?
      I probably wouldn't have called an all-in however.

      I'm having a hard time choosing what to do with AK in these 6max zoom.

      With AKs I may call. Given 150bb stack sizes, I don't mind squeeze/folding. I think BTN is sandwiched between you and BB, and BB isn't strong too often, so BTN is going to be playing very honestly. I think it's kind of hard to call AKo here and play postflop.

      Nice hand.
