      Preflop: Hero is Button with A, K
      6 folds, CO bets $1.75, Hero raises $5.50, SB raises $12.25, 3 folds

      Total pot: $13.25

      CO Stats:
      CO Open Raise: 21%

      SB Stats:

      This fold felt soo weak =/

      Ok, so i think 5bet/fold was probably a good line to avoid problems, 5bet/push is probably overplayed being deepstack, isnt it?

      I think I could also cold call and play postflop, right? but it felt so complicated than I rather fold preflop lol

      I had an incredibly similar hand the other week which I also gave up preflop which I also gave up. I'd be interested to see Judges opinion here too.

      5bet/fold as SB can think we are just restealing CO loose thus we have much FE against an expanded range?

      Players would very rarely 4-bet there as a bluff and a lot of times they have KK+. I also like fold, since you´re deep and against KK+ you´re not that well postflop that you should call ip.
      Don´t think I like 5-bet/fold that much. If you put him on weaker range than KK+, then imo you should call ip and play postflop.
