      You just need a little more than 27% equity. You really can't judge the 3 and 4 bet stats with so little hands. I would give Button AA-QQ maybe also AK (depends how are his other stats) range. Try to run it in the equilator.

      P.S. You shouldn't post results in this forum since they will influence the opinion of people commenting the hand.

      You have 33% equity. I dont think its ever a big mistake to shove AK when there is dead money already in the pot.

      Pretty easy call with AK here. You are raising from MP3 so that doesn't show too much strength and they can 3bet/4bet quite looser. Btw, when you have so few hands on opponents, look to their PFR/VPIP stats since they are more general, 3bet 4bet% are no good before 1k+ hands

      I reckon BU is probably still shoving JJ+ AK+ here at tightest. I reckon we can call like you did.

      I would like to see their vpip.pfr as well in future hands though thanks.

      Hi,

      BU 4Bet%: 4% Over 84 Hands[/quote]This is by no means a sample so you are judging your decision based on invalid samples ;)

      Though you beat CO's range, BU range is strictly QQ+ which you do not ever beat but If you shove , CO will call as well making 33% BEQ

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 19.348 % 15.785 % 7.277 % 76.938 % AdKs
      Player 2: 55.240 % 54.492 % 1.647 % 43.861 % QQ+
      Player 3: 25.412 % 21.454 % 8.068 % 70.479 % TT+, AKs, AKo
      Adding some PPs and an Ace Queen suited (Because they are suited..)

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 21.478 % 18.937 % 5.222 % 75.841 % AdKs
      Player 2: 55.418 % 54.810 % 1.356 % 43.834 % QQ+
      Player 3: 23.104 % 20.343 % 5.662 % 73.996 % 88+, AQs+, AKo
      I think it is a muck, even if you add BTN's range with AK, you have 30%

      Best regards,
      Gerv
