      Hello,

      Was this a good fold? Regardless of the fact that I would've flopped the nuts.
      I mean... personally, I really feel like just shoving it in there because I feel those raises are weak. I feel like the guy initial raiser has suited connectors or a small pair and the button is just making it a normal 4BB pre-flop raise with AJ/AQ/KQ etc.

      I feel like I am ahead of their ranges but I just fold here cause SSS says to not play anything but Kings & Aces after a pre-flop 3bet and before I decided to give SSS another try today I also promised myself I would follow the range letter by letter!
      Should I stick to this rule strictly or can I just shove AK here if the re-raise doesn't go over a normal sized open raise like in this case?
