      Hi,

      Is this a shove, and if it is, is it always a shove in these kind of situations? I put him on JJ+,AK so I'm behind, but I think he might even fold better hands, what do you tihnk?

      Hey BotiaKiraly,

      When you 3bet vs UTG open and CO cold 4bets AKo is actually behind villain's range. Villains range will be something like QQ+/AK at the absoslute widest. It should be a pretty straight-forward fold preflop. Even if you get the direct odds you need to call preflop you are going to have a lot of reverse-implieds on various flops.

      On the flop I'd tend towards check/folding. Villain may fold some combos of AK without a FD but probably not enough combos out of his entire range to make a semi-bluff profitable. This also assumes he even has AKo in his range, and many players would flat call vs an UTG open and CO 3bet.
