      UTG (€5.47) 109bb 25/18, F3B: 33(6), 190h, *calls 3B w/ 75s, calls Cb w/ 2nd pair
      UTG+1 (€4.60) 92bb
      HERO (CO) (€5.08) 102bb
      BTN (€1.62) 32bb
      SB (€5.11) 102bb 20/17, 3B/4B: 0, 80h
      BB (€5.39) 108bb

      Pre-Flop: (€0.07, 6 players) HERO is CO K:spade: A:heart:
      UTG raises to €0.15, 1 fold, HERO raises to €0.45, 1 fold, SB raises to €1.15, 1 fold, UTG calls €1, HERO?

      Easy value 3-bet vs UTG, SB 4-bet obviously is very strong. Most likely QQ+.
      UTG calls 4-bet with something like JJ/QQ/AK/AQ.

      I guess, my decision depends on, if I got any FE against UTG. If I don`t, I think I have to push, as I`m most likely ahead of his range and there is a lot of money in the pot already.

      I would prefer folding. You can ofcourse call or shove, but I doubt SB is cold 4-betting too often worse hands than KK-AA. He may always have there AK, QQ-AA, but since you hold AK and UTG flat SB cold 4-bet you may easily be against KK/AA

      And even if someone doesn´t have AK, it is more likely that you´re against AK, vs AK vs pp (and only have 18%) equity
      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AK 18.34% 16,745 187,416
      AK 18.34% 16,778 187,416
      QQ 63.32% 379,061 2,588

      Also if you should be against JJ vs QQ then you´re still going to miss around 2/3 times and have to fold against c-bet+ a lot of bad implied odds if you should hit K/A and someone is holding either overpair on K54 (AK vs AA) or set AT6 board (AA vs AK)
