      PokerStars No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (7 handed) - Poker-Stars Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      Button ($26.25)
      SB ($25.25)
      BB ($29.80)
      UTG ($25)
      MP1 ($36.15)
      MP2 ($28.65)
      Gerv (CO) ($26.50)

      Preflop: Gerv is CO with A, K
      3 folds, Gerv bets $1, Button raises to $3.25, 1 fold, BB calls $3, Gerv raises to $12, Button raises to $26.25 (All-In), 1 fold, Gerv calls $14.25

      BB is a recreational Fish so he creates extra deadmoney.

      Question here though is concerns for AKs and QQ since flatcalling BTN's 3bet is very weak imo. My image was just a TAG without hyper aggression against the blinds.
      I decided to 4bet because of my blockers against AA/KK and against KK+ , I come short 2% equity as in break-even.

      I found this a hard hand to find the optimal line..

      This is standard for me until you get more reads from BU, he might know that your range for opening the CO is wide and 3bet quite light from the BU, i'm going with AKs in that situation almost always.

      The extra dead money from BB is a bonus, even tho the presence of that guy might make BU less likely to 3bet light if he coldcalls everything.

      Hope it helps.
