      Hi DarkAwi,

      Preflop: What's the reason behind our call here with AKo vs an unknown? As you can see we make our life a bit harder trying to play postflop when we have no information. I don't think 4-betting would be a mistake, especially given his 3-bet size.

      Postflop: As played I think the fold is really tight but we only really beat a bluff. I doubt that anything worse valuebets like this.

      We are UTG vs BB, don't think he has many bluffs, if he has any, but I'd like to keep them in. I felt folding weak, since we are IP, but with 4betting I just isolate myself against AK/QQ+, maybe KK+, not everyone 3bets AK/QQ vs an unknown UTG.

      Generally we 4-bet for the dead money too. Don't forget that you can win two ways:

      1) we always win when he folds
      2) we win vs his AI range X amount of the time.

      His bet size preflop makes me think that he is polarized. Either trying a cheap bluff or trying to keep us in as 9 BB is a bit of a small 3-bet OOP when you face a IP raise.
