      Annoying not having reads on this guy. Vs unknown I should probably give villain a premium cold 4betting range right? I think i misplayed this hand if that is the case because the only hand that i'm good against is QQ with :club: If we give villain hands like AJ or AQ then i could be ok here. What do you think?

      Hi

      Fold > Call > Shove

      I think he is virtually never bluffing here, and AKs is an underdog vs a range of QQ+/AK

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 41.90% 22.62% 19.28% { AKs }
      MP3 58.10% 38.81% 19.28% { QQ+, AKs, AKo }

      With 42% equity, I suppose calling can't be too bad especially vs smaller 4b sizes, and also because you have the suitedness which allows you to continue on way more flops.
