      3betting pre-flop is better, especially since you're OOP.

      Being IP is very good, so you have to make your opponents pay for that luxury.

      When you're in the blinds, always reraise bigger than the standard 3x

      In this spot, I'm reraising to at least $4 pre-flop.

      As played:
      When you c/r him and he 4bets you, I think you can find a fold, because I don't think you're getting anything better than a split. Going broke is not a mistake though. You have a good hand with good showdown value.

      Another option would be to c/c him on the 3 streets. That'll keep the pot smaller and you can beat hands like AT or AQ or worse, which might have folded after your reraise on the flop.

      Cheers

      The second option is kinda tough, you have to worry about draws, or some two pair and cant extract enough value of dominated aces OOP
      3bet PF and y, make it bigger.

      As played, what line do you think is best on flop dark?

      I get kind of scared of that board cause AK is a split, AQ we beat, AJ we lose, AT we beat, A9 we lose. And then we can be against 99, JJ, AA.


      Do you think going broke is the best option here?
      It's true what you said about having to worry about draws. I think both options are reasonable. I can't really figure out which one is best.
