      All i'd say is if you are willing to get all in when you miss the flop with AKo then you should have shoved pre-flop.

      Shove, call, or fold. Villain will feel committed anyway on the flop.

      Hi,


      Just shove preflop against a villain with 50bb, he's rarely going to fold whatever he 3bet, but if he is ever going to fold something, it's gonna be because he's scared of the shove. When you make a small 4bet it's still "cheap" in his mind, he can still get away postflop or so he thinks. You want stuff you're flipping with like 88 to go away if possible. It also prevents you from getting into weird postflop scenario where you have AK-high and no fold equity yet you're committed.


      Hope it helps.
