      420 hands, 30/25 fold to 4bet 68, 4bet + 31%, but all from bu 4/7

      Is it ok call? I expect him to bluff often, but I dont want to shove and isolate against better so deep. Is it ok float once ? Usually people give up their AQ, AK...

      Preflop: Since he's loose I like the 3bet. Vs the 4bet we can either min5bet or flat. Without dynamic, flatting is probably the best option. But you can certainly min5bet with a fairly wide range to create some aggro dynamics.

      Flop: Never folding AK here on this board. If AK was good preflop, it sure is good on this Flop. I would be more afraid of Flops containing Q and J cos people tend to 4bet bluff with blockers.

      Rest of the hand plays itself. Nice hand.
