      EP 2.3k hands, 23/21 3bet 10, cbet 76, fold to 3bet 70%, 4bet 30%
      BB 35 hands, 18/0

      Is it ok to call here when I am IP and play against regg, who folds 70% 3bet and defendds with 4bets, if calls he could call JJ, TT, QQ against which i am weaker.

      So as I realized, it is better to call AK IP especially against MP and EP since they are more likely to have Ax Kx hands than BU, CO which has a lot of trash. Also if I 3bet them they fold KQ, Ax, except maybe AQ if they dont 4bet which are actually all hands which I completely crush and can get value like here.
      So is it ok in general to call AK IP against reggs, and again fish who call 3bet a lot to 3bet?

      Preflop: I prefer flatting here, 3betting just isolates us vs the stronger parts of his range. To justify 3betting here, we either need him to 4b bluff a lot, or just continue with some worse hands like AQ KQs AJs.

      Postflop looks really standard but I would bet larger on the River to 45bb. I don't think he folds AJ and AQ all that much.
