      Opponent is 28/21/6(3bet)/50(cbet)/2(AF)
      Notes: he 3bets light(JJ,22,ATo), he calls 3bets light(QTs IP)


      I choose to 4bet him because he is capable of 3betting light and I always find it difficult to play AK in 3bet pot without me being the 3bettor.

      Would you play it differently, how?:)

      Hi Tsukk,

      Preflop: I agree with your 3-bet here especially with AKo (despite having position). I think that i would 3-bet to 23-24 BB at these limits since he may have a calling range.

      Postflop: As played I think I'd check the flop back because I don't think we have enough FE and we were to bet I wouldn't make it bigger than 20 BB. Anything that folds can fold to 20 BB just as easy as to 27 BB.

      Thanks for the answer

      I have an additional question - so if we check back the flop, is our plan to check/fold every street unless we hit A or K and if we do then we bet it?

      Yes, that would be my plan.

      His range for calling your 4-bet is on the stronger side. Normally pairs and AK/AQ type hands.
