      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:

      Preflop: Hero is BB with K, A.
      MP3 folds, CO raises to $0.35, BU calls $0.35, Hero raises to $1.95, MP2 folds, CO raises to $4.05, BU folds, Hero raises to $9.27(All-In), Hero raises to $0.00(All-In), CO calls $5.45(All-In), CO calls $0.00(All-In).

      Flop: ($21.57) 8, 4, 9 (3 players)

      Turn: ($21.57) 7 (3 players)

      River: ($21.57) 4 (3 players)

      Final Pot: $21.57.

      What if he raised to $6 or shoved?

      edit: I squeezed to $2 because BU would call it with any two if it wasn't for the 4-bet.

      4bet min-raise... this is so strong. I think you can safely fold here but I can't really judge the situation properly without player stats.

      VPIP/PFR/AF/3bet %??? It's pretty important to include stats in these kind of hands cause these kinda pots really are all about reads.

      He sat down at the table about 5 min before this hand. I think he was tight.

      I guess folding could induce light 4bet-minraise later, which would be nice.

      If you think CO is tight enough not to play AK and/or JJ that way you can find a fold, but against most players especially without a decent sample size when you squeeze AK it's have never a mistake to go broke, especially because it's such an obvious squeeze spot. You'll see people randomly trying to fight back with crap often enough to show a profit imo.

      Doesn't make much of a difference to me against an unknown whether he 4bets to $4 $6 or plain shoves i'm still not folding once i squeezed AK without stats.

      I wouldn't really count on inducing further light min4bets, you'll just end up outleveling yourself way too often at nl10.

      Hope it helps.
