      Preflop: Hero is CO with K A
      UTG folds, MP calls $0.50, Hero raises to $2.50, 3 folds, MP raises to $4.75, Hero raises to $15, MP raises to $33.15 and is all-in, Hero calls $18.15

      Flop: ($67.05) 8 T 5 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      River: ($67.05) 4 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Villain has a 6% limp reraise over large sample. I usually tend to fold AK in this spot vs guys that limp - reraise but I thought that in this case a 6% range should be wide enough for me to stack off.

      This is definitely a sample size issue. I don't think having 6% is going to be accurate here. I'm pretty sure your sample size on this guy is 100-200 hands at the very most given that this guy is a fish.

      1) He seems loose which is great
      2) 3bet % of 4.5% = not that aggro, on the lower side but also means that he is capable of 3betting with some non nutted hands
      3) He is slightly short at 66bb which is great for stacking off here.

      I would flat and proceed on the Flop, probably folding most flops unless he bets really small. We are given great odds on a call, and poor odds on a 4bet (less dead money to take down preflop)
