      BTN: $20.20 (101 bb)
      SB: $20.90 (104.5 bb)
      Hero (BB): $37.06 (185.3 bb)
      CO: $37.81 (189.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A K
      CO raises to $0.80, BTN folds, SB raises to $2.60, Hero raises to $6, 2 folds

      Results:
      $6 pot
      Hero mucked A K and won $6 ($3.40 net)



      CO: 20/17 262 hands FT3b 4/4

      SB: 20/17 186 hands 3betFromSB 4/16

      Looks like SB is exploiting CO's high FT3b, and we have a very pretty hand to 4bet.

      If CO 5bets or ships i would fold considering we are deep and given his stats,

      I would be happy to get it in Vs SB

      Questions:

      Good spot to "4 bet bluff"?

      Plan if CO raises?

      Hey Gary,

      Against CO you can 4bet/fold for sure imo. He won't 5bet bluff and you will rarely get odds to call preflop. He won't ship though, he will 5bet smaller, or at least that's the standard.

      Against SB you can get it in I'd say. Too much money already in the pot and you have AKs.

      The spot is definitely good to cold 4bet as a bluff. I would use KQ here and AQ if I deem it too weak too call.
