      UTG raises to $0.17, MP folds, Hero raises to $0.45, 3 folds, UTG raises to $1.41, Hero calls $0.96

      $22.77 pot ($1.51 rake)

      UTG showed A A and won $21.26 ($9.91 net)
      Hero showed A K and lost (-$11.35 net)

      Player VPIp was 28. Should i fold pr flop that kind of hands? On flop i was simply thinking he had KK QQ.

      Preflop: How wide is he opening preflop? If he is opening a loose range I would definitely 3b here. If he has a tight range I would flat here. Vs the 4b, if he has a wide 4b range I would call here for sure. If he has a really tight range, maybe you can hero-fold this. But calling 4bets with AKs can never be a huge mistake.

      Flop: once we hit TPTK with such a low SPR, i'm never folding. I would not shove the Turn though. Just keep calling down.
