      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.35, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.30, BB folds, MP3 raises to $2.25, Hero...?

      I'm guessing it's push or fold? AKs is ahead of MP3's range usually, but against an unkown I'm unsure what to do. Calling is obviously out of the question right?

      I'm unsure about this.
      Even against a tight range 99+, AKs, AKo you have 44% equity.

      On the other hand is a min3-bet either superstrong or superweak.
      You have to call just 0,95$ to win 3,65$ => 1:3,84 ~ you need 26% equity.

      Problem is obviously that you are oop and you have to fold unimproved.
      But with just calling you let the bluffs in his range. And you save 7,75$ in case he really has you crushed.

      But for gameflow reasons I'd push over his min4-bet just to make a statement that he can't push me around.

      Let's see what the judges think.

      I see a lot of fish min3bet, i don't see many min4bet after open raising pot. It's WAY stronger in my opinion.

      So unless you've been insanely aggro on him and he might be pissed off, or you saw him take that line a few times already, in which case it's a shove, i'd likely just fold because we'll be flipping/dead way too often without history.

      Hope it helps.
