      Villian is 50/9/0.9 (VPIP/PFR/AF)after 298 hands 3-bet only 1% (Button 6% according to HM). I hadn't had problem with that hand on Nl5sh but now I overplay AK. Is this worth to play AK 4-bet/all-in or 3-bet/call shove. How should look my default line with AK. I do need advcice how to play that hand :s_mad:

      there's nothing like default line. it all depends. if you're 3-betted by such an opponent you can be pretty sure the you're up against KK+ (or maybe even AA) and as you have great odds you can try to bust him.

      against unknown opponent i also prefer cold calling his 3-bet with AK (especially IP). it gives me great win/risk ratio

      Since it's so cheap and we're suited i'd call the 4-bet and try to make a flush/straight if he continues to give me great odds. You aren't obligated to felt AK against people who barely ever raise it's too likely you're toast when you get 4-bet, if that guy had 4-bet bigger i would simply have folded.

      Hope it helps.
