      BB ($20.40) 102bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.30, 5 players) hero is UTG K A
      hero raises to $0.70, 3 folds, BB raises to $2.40, hero raises to $5.20, BB raises to $8, hero??

      He 3B a lot from the blinds but thats mostly vs steals.
      I don't know if he bluffs in this spot since i was rather tight on the table.

      Hey Chocular77,

      BB may not be 3betting light vs MP as you say. He has 3bet 3 times from CO though, so there is a possibility he is not positionally aware, in which case continuing with AK is fine.

      That doesn't necessarily mean you have the dynamic to 4bet/commit with AK, but I don't think you should be 4betting unless you are going to go with the hand. (Otherwise you are turning AK into bluff unless you know villain has wide flat-4bet range). I'd tend towards flatting and playing with your positional advantage vs villain's entire 3bet range.
