      HI Lunitis,

      Preflop: Given our positions and players we can go with both calling and cold 4-betting.

      Both are loose enough that we can show a profit either way and it will come down to what we know about them postflop and how comfortable you are playing postflop in a bigger pot. If you are not very comfortable/confident in your reads we can just 4-bet and go with the hand.

      We are only 100 BB deep with both of them so yes it would be a 4-bet and call.

      If he shoves AK/QQ i have:


             Equity  Vencer  Empate
      MP2    41.90%  22.62%  19.28% { AhKh }
      MP3    58.10%  38.81%  19.28% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }


      42% equity.

      If i 3bet to 9 i have to call 41 to win around 100. Close to break even.
      Or do you think they might shove wider? Unless they shove AQ more pairs wont make that much of a difference in my equity..
      And if you have AKo? 4bet/fold?

      Cutoff obviously likes to 3bet a fair amount and not fold vs 4bets which also means he's sticking it in wider than he should be. granted this is a cold 4bet in positions that are not btn, sb, BB so your range kinda looks stronger (which should make his 5betting range stronger) but he just seems like the type of guy who's gonna spew it in lighter than QQ+AK, not to mention that if you have a decent sample then that 2.9% 5bet range is huge!

      I think that with both we can do about the same depending on what size you use.

      Most of your profit will come from both of them folding. And if he never folds that means his range is super wide which is good for us anyway.
