      I have 2 hands on him, but just a hand 10 seconds ago, he also min 3bet I called IP and then he was bet bet bet. Now again and I have to 4bet. when he calls, I planned to bluff catch, but since he bets pot I see it is a bluff and go all in with backdoor fd.

      I think you may be able to get away with a larger 4bet size of 20bb. This guy is probably some monster whale. I want to raise larger so I can commit more of my stack preflop to make postflop decisions easier, and also because AK crushes this guy's range of numerous other unpaired hands like weaker broadways.

      Flop: On a 744 board I would just c/c my entire stack off. On this particular texture when he pots, I think there is way too much dead money in the pot and playability is really terrible on future streets. I don't mind taking your line (though it would have been better if pot was larger and there is less money left behind in stacks).
