      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      BTN: 101.5 BB (VPIP: 14.29, PFR: 7.14, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 29)
      Hero (SB): 135.22 BB
      BB: 53.12 BB (VPIP: 26.57, PFR: 18.88, 3Bet Preflop: 8.20, Hands: 146)
      UTG: 133.42 BB (VPIP: 23.08, PFR: 20.36, 3Bet Preflop: 7.14, Hands: 225)
      MP: 135.12 BB (VPIP: 20.27, PFR: 15.20, 3Bet Preflop: 4.07, Hands: 305)
      CO: 282.62 BB (VPIP: 25.53, PFR: 22.70, 3Bet Preflop: 11.86, Hands: 142)

      Hero posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:diamond: K:heart:

      UTG raises to 3.5 BB, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to 10 BB, fold, UTG calls 6.5 BB

      Flop: (21 BB, 2 players) J:diamond: 4:club: Q:spade:
      Hero bets 12 BB, UTG raises to 30 BB, fold

      UTG wins 42.98 BB



      He folds 5/7 to 3bet, is it better call AK?

      Is fold flop ok? I dont think he bluffs that often

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: given we are deeper I'd still expect more calls so we can 3-bet. However, I think it would be too loose to 5-bet shove if he does indeed 4-bet us.

      Postflop: As played I don't think this is a great flop to cbet unless you expect a ton of small pairs to call.

      I expect many PP to call since we are 135BB so he can call for set value IP, and my range should be stronger vs MP.
      If he calls with broadways he never folds this flop, but I expect him to call mostly suited broadways so imo there should be enough PP that fold. Also I have gutshot and overcards thats why I cbet, but I realized that this board he hits often.
