      MP: $10.00 (VPIP: 19.73, PFR: 16.36, 3Bet Preflop: 4.83, Hands: 623)

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.15) Hero has K:heart: A:club:

      UTG calls $0.10, fold, fold, BTN raises to $0.40, fold, Hero raises to $1.30, fold, BTN raises to $2.90, fold

      BTN wins $2.75

      of course his hand sample is small for that but he had a fold to 3-bet of around 65% (4/6), even 100% on button (4/4) and a 4+bet of 0% and since I was OOP I thought I either had to push or fold, so I decided to fold...
      I thought he would never do this with less than AKs/QQ and that I had no fold equity so thought I could wait for better spots to shove it....
      Was this to weak ?

      Consider his 4-bet size I think he is also 4-bet bluffing quite a lot.
      So I would shove my AK for value. If BU was nit I think 3-bet/fold AK is fine your spot, since tight player would usually not 4-bet worse hands than yours and mostly you see KK/AA

      Seems more like fold - of course 3-bet by positions -stat would be helpful here. But when this kind of guy 3-bets you you are not in such a good shape as I think he doesn't have wider 3-bet range on later positions.
