      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2:
      $23.45
      MP3(Hero):
      $25.35
      CO:
      $63.48
      BU:
      $32.62
      SB:
      $27.17
      BB:
      $24.65


      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with A, K.
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, CO folds, BU raises to $3.00, SB folds, BB calls $2.75,

      BU is a 15/7 tag with 6.67% 3-bet preflop oven 71 hands. I realise it's not a big sample size.

      BB is a (most likely very tilted) 39/16 fish who just has lost over 3 BIs in a row, so he's probably ready to gamble with a very wide range here.

      What do you think of just shipping in the whole stack right here after the 3-bet and call? I'm a bit scared of the 15/7 tag, but it's such a small sample. It's not like I'm 4-bet/folding...

      Yeah, you have a 4bet/call here.

      I think I'd prefer a normal 4bet (about ~$9.00 or $10.00) because the fish may still think he has FE with a push. And the TAG is going to pay/fold with the same hands no matter what is the size of your 4bet I think.

      Ok, yeah. Sounds better.

      since pot is big and likely you´re not folding your hand I like shove pf, unless you have reasons that BU/BB would call 4-bet with worse hands or 5-bet shoving with worst hands, like AQ
      If you shove then he might fold there 99-JJ, which is your main reason why you should want to shove instead of 4-bet/call with AKs
