      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      Hero (MP): $60.32 (120.6 bb)
      CO: $50.31 (100.6 bb)
      BTN: $50 (100 bb)
      SB: $53.82 (107.6 bb)
      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $79.87 (159.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A K
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.50, 3 folds, BB raises to $5, Hero raises to $11, BB raises to $50 and is all-in, Hero folds

      Anon table.

      BB played 17/17 after 7 hands.

      Against an unknown regular, without any dynamics/history, does my play make any sense? I didnt want to call, so I made a 4bet using my blockers. He instashowed, and I decided to fold.
      Would be a better option to just call, and play the hand postflop?

      Just call the 3bet if you are unwilling to stack off. You gain a lot of deceptive value, since people are never putting you on AK preflop after you calll.

      You can also float any dry flop, and if he checks on wet boards you can probably just bet and expect him to fold a ton.
