      IPoker, $0.01/$0.02 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 4 Players

      SB: $2 (100 bb)

      BB: $1.82 (91 bb)

      Hero (CO): $2.03 (101.5 bb)
      BTN: $1.71 (85.5 bb)


      Preflop: Hero is CO with A K
      Hero raises to $0.06, BTN calls $0.06, SB raises to $0.22, BB raises to $0.40, Hero?

      My standard open from CO is 3BB. BU just calls so I think he is on PP or dominated hand, SB squeezes so he could have wither range as well, and I think I can profitably 4bet for now. Usualy, when BB 4bets I think it's easy fold for me, but here, BB seams to be bigger fish, so I'm not sure what I should do in spots like this.

      Hi Oly,

      Preflop: Given that we still have 3 players left to act I think that we have a fold on our hands.

      While I agree that both SB and BB could potentially be looser our reads are not strong enough to allow us to ship it here and feel comfortable about it. And even if we are plus ev I don't think it will be by a lot.

      So I would personally recommend folding with AKo. With AKs I would probably just ship.
