      Hello,
      You cant really only call in this spot. Against unknown it should be a fold, but against this guy, who is obviously playing every hand by just clicking the raise button, its an easy shove.
      As played, flop is standart.
      Best regards,

      [size=10]If you have any further questions about this hand,
      dont hesitate to ask them in this thread,
      and dont forget to click the "Advise the judge of taking another look " button in the reply form.[/size]

      Calling 4-bet is bad. But calling 5-bet is even worse. You cannot fold after you made 4-bet. You invested so much money in the pot. You must shove.

      Why not to call $2? One in 3 times you hit Ace or King. Which means that you lose another $2 (and you may be sometimes still ahead) in two of three times (when you fold).

      One in three times when you hit:
      a) you hit a King - you are behind KK and AA in which case you lose your full stack
      - you are ahead of QQ (or worse hands) from which you will win c-bet at maximum (if any)
      - you split with AK

      b) you hit an Ace - you are behind AA in which case you lose your full stack
      - you are ahead of KK, QQ from which you will win c-bet at maximum (if any)
      - you split with AK

      All at all, you are in a bad shape when you call :D
