      i decided to 3bet preflop but it's hard to say whether there is value.. UTG is pretty tight over 35 hands and BU is unknown. is it fine just 4bet/calling with AK even though BU is 3betting vs UTG?

      on the flop it's so dry and i'm not really scared of many turns so i decided to check to try and induce some spew - if he has AQ he probably won't call down 3 streets, same with JJ/QQ so if he doesn't stab the flop IP then i can still bet turn and river.

      maybe i should just be bet bet betting here BECAUSE he will call me with AQ.. i dunno :D

      Preflop against unknowns it's quite close and one can argue about both 4betting and folding being right. What I know for sure is that I'm never calling this OOP, but since people don't 3bet enough against UTG I would rather fold this.

      Postflop looks good to me. Ax is probably calling down, so we don't mind to check and give him a chance to bluff, plus considering the SPR even if villain checks back, we could easily put the money in.
