      Is this the correct fold? I put him on 1010+ aq+ but i doubt he's 4 betting me with aq...

      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      BU:
      $1.55
      SB(Hero):
      $3.01
      BB:
      $0.79
      UTG1:
      $0.45

      $2.52
      MP3:
      $10.98
      CO:
      $1.46


      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K.
      2 folds, MP1 calls $0.10, MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1.19, 2 folds, MP3 raises to $1.98, Hero folds, MP3 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.39.

      why do you have 30BB?



      after a raise you go all in with AK instead of a reraise at NL10 unless you have a good reason to do otherwise (Well known very tight passive villain for example) you will win more often than not.

      Hi Swire

      With <30bb, if you 3bet someone, never éver fold. Even though in your mind you are probably flipping with any PP, you lose soo much money if you fold: 12bb

      Now the %equity you have to get at least is
      $3+$0.1+$0.15+$1.2]*0.95[rake] against $1.8 (your remaining stack)
      $4.2:$1.8
      =
      29.8% break-even equity, now standard you got 45% against a PP

      So folding your 15% equityshare is tremendous in the long run.

      So just shove it in with AK, it is top2.5% after all :)

      I doubled up and was waiting for the blinds to sit out. I now realise it's an easy push after the 3bet. Thanks for the advice Gerv :)
