      not sure how to play AK in this situation. Should I 4 bet pre-flop instead of call?

      BU has STATS VPIP 26 and PFR 21

      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.25 BB (6 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from FlopTurnRiver.com

      Button ($32.05)
      SB ($25)
      BB ($55.85)
      UTG ($24.60)
      MP ($30.60)
      Hero (CO) ($28)

      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A
      2 folds, Hero bets $0.75, Button raises $3.25, 2 folds, Hero calls $2.50

      Flop: ($6.85) J, 2, 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, Button bets $5, Hero folds

      Total pot: $6.85

      Even with out seeing his 3bet% from his vpip/pfr it's the type of guy I 4bet and get in pf with AK. especially CO vs BU.
      I mentioned a couple of times before calling a 3bet with AK OOP with 100BB effective stacks is bad. You want to see 5cards with AK and you want to be the pfa.
      You see what happen when you call the 3bet, you miss and most of the forced to c/f.

      Just re-raise to 9$ and call shove
