      Hey Cuvash,

      When you open UTG and get 3bet from CO, you need to be very careful even with holdings as strong as AK. It might be a mistake to 4bet here. History on opponents 3betting range + stats is important. Vs uknowns I would tend towards flatting AKs here and seeing a flop multi-way.

      As played, your bet is not really a donk-bet because you were the preflop aggressor. You have completely missed the flop, so I recommend you give up when you have no info on villain.

      Isn't monotone board good for bluffing especialy if i shown some aggression preflop vs unknown?

      I definitely think this is true in single-raised pots.

      In 4bet pots you are going to have less fold equity.

      Also the fact that this guy even called a 4-bet after initially flatting suggests folding is not something he is good at.
