      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):
      $50.00
      MP3:
      $50.00
      CO:
      $20.75
      BU:
      $54.50
      SB:
      $67.31
      BB:
      $50.00
      MP1:
      $107.60


      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with 8, A.
      MP1 folds, Hero raises to $1.50, MP3 folds, CO raises to $3.42, 3 folds, Hero raises to $8.50, CO raises to $20.75, Hero calls $12.25.


      REG MSS 15/14/ 9.3% 3bet over 1K.

      3bet vs UTG 8%, vs MP 9%

      Fold to 4bet 26% (7).

      WTSD 33% wins 48%.

      Is it ideal to always go broke with A8s vs him?

      Hi.

      4b is by far the worse play. I would either call or fold here. In this instance since hes short i would just fold. Shoving only makes sense if u think u have fold equity (he must have air hands in his 3b range)

      Based on ur equity simulation u think that he has a pure value range and A8s is crushed hard by such a range so i donnt really get this play.

      ok understand.

      So is AJ or KQ a better choice for this kind of play?

      Abt your 4bet size: u are obviously committed here so u should either just push your hand or make a smaller 4b size so u can still bet/fold.

      His 4b is so low so i think his range is merged here (has a wide value range).

      I would call with kq and aj
