      No-Limit Hold'em, $0.50 BB (5 handed) - Hold'em Manager Converter Tool from

      saw flop

      MP ($50)

      Button ($37.50)
      Gerv (SB) ($50)
      BB ($86.30)
      UTG ($51.90)
      Fish , 67/25 player

      Preflop: Gerv is SB with K, A
      UTG bets $1.50, MP raises $5.50, 1 fold, Gerv calls $5.25, 1 fold, UTG calls $4

      Flop: ($17) Q, A, 6 (3 players)
      Gerv checks, UTG bets $2, MP raises $8, Gerv calls $8, 1 fold

      Turn: ($35) T (2 players)
      Gerv checks, MP bets $36.50 (All-In), Gerv calls $36.50 (All-In)

      I found playing 3way with Fish even though Im OOP a bit more important than ''flipping'' most of the time against this regular. if I c/R flop, does that scare away AJ and worse?

      Or shoudl I just go ahead and 4bet here to $14?

      I don't really like a call here for a multiway pot oop with AKs. I would 4bet/call here cause that makes my life whole lot of easier and I'm not forced to make difficult postflop decisions. I'm not sure if it has better EV than flatting though.

      On the flop your flatcall looks strong as hell for me, not sure what the fish thinks, but I guess it's ok to keep his lower aces in the pot. I see him on AQ here very often though due to his low 3bet.

      4-bet pf is a little better than pay your hand oop
      If player is very aggro he might even shove AQ and that makes AK 4-bet best play pf.
      if you cold 3-bet flop then it looks very strong, so I kind of like your line calling flop and then again calling turn or if turn goes c/c, then valuebet river half potsize
