      Hello!

      I'm not sure if I did the right move with 4-beting preflop. Open raiser is not that loose, expecially from the UTG. My toughts at that moment was that I am ahead of CO's range and the UTG will usually fold pocket pairs and weak broadways. I should 4-bet bigger or maybe shove, I think (don't know why I min 4-bet). When UTG shoves, I am pretty much against QQ+ and AK, but it was hard to fold for me, sicne I invested so much..


      UTG: 18/16/0/8,0/72 (VPIP/PFR/Fv3B/AF/H)
      CO: 56/32/33,3/4,5/26 (VPIP/PFR/3B/AF/H)

      Hero (BB): $31.18 (311.8 bb)
      UTG: $11.20 (112 bb)
      MP: $11.77 (117.7 bb)
      CO: $1.66 (16.6 bb)
      BTN: $10.34 (103.4 bb)
      SB: $3.50 (35 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      UTG raises to $0.30, MP folds, CO raises to $1.66 and is all-in, 2 folds, Hero raises to $3.02, UTG raises to $11.20, Hero calls $8.18

      Flop: ($24.11) 6 9 T (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      Turn: ($24.11) J (3 players, 1 is all-in)
      River: ($24.11) 7 (3 players, 1 is all-in)

      Hi.

      I think ak is a favourite vs CO's range so im calling here. I dont like 4betting. I think we should call, and if utg pushes then we decide on whether to stack off or not (i think u can fold vs a tighter opponent).

      Since CO's 3bet size is kind of huge i dont think utg will call the 3b too often.

      And you are against UTG, way tighter range than on later positions. Call and fold to re-raise.

      Yes, i agree that calling is the best option there.. UTG seems like a tight reg so calling and folding to his 4-bet is the best option.

      If he calls, I am probably continuing my hand only if I hit..
