      I am definitely calling here with AK, you have position over BB. Vs which player do you play with AK then? If you even don't play with a loose player then you can always fold AK. But you are right, playing with AK is pretty hard. On my own I have also a leak with AK, especially AKo :P I haven't made any profit with it because I used to loose pretty with big them at start. At least it's getting better for now...

      Seeing his exact stats (expert stats) I can safely call pf or even 3-bet, but Im still using basic stats. I will unlock expert stats on Elephant this week though.

      you are funny always talking about expert stats and basic stats :D
      about the hand
      even if he has a preaty tight range raising from sb with so many limpers i like 3 beting AK and geting it in . alot of times he will give up preflop tough because he tries to steal the dead money

      I guess Im frustrated because I get the feeling Im losing money because of not having expert Elephant stats unlocked.

      I think I understand AK better now.

      1. If I 3bet/fold its a bluff, so I must go with the hand.
      2. Im behind only AA/KK which are unlikely since I have AK
      3. Its like never folding KK since even if he has AA, we can suckout?

      But what to do against a raise from a nit and a call from a LAG? 3bet/call knowing he has tight range? I cant call nit since LAG will come along too.

      You can suckout even to AA :) at 7% of times.
      against nit I´d prefer 3-bet and then fold, since he would likely shove with KK and AA there.

      What? Why? 4bet/fold is a mistake and I agree, but why should 3bet/fold be wrong? Don't get it. Can any judge comment on that? TIA.

      with 4-bet you´ve invested too much to fold (just getting too good odds if get shoves, especially when you believe that player can shove QQ+, AK)
      with 3-bet you can still get away with AK if you put nit only on AA, KK.
