      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)

      Known players:
      MP1:
      $85.83
      MP2:
      $22.17
      MP3:
      $37.10
      CO(Hero):
      $70.58
      BU:
      $24.91
      SB:
      $52.26
      BB:
      $24.12
      UTG1:
      $35.34
      UTG2:
      $39.09


      Preflop: Hero is CO with K, A.
      5 folds, Hero raises to $1.00, BU calls $1.00, SB folds, BB raises to $4.10, Hero calls $3.10, BU folds.

      Flop: ($9.3) 8, 3, 8 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $5.00, BB raises to $20.02, Hero folds, BB gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $14.3.



      I didn't expect to see villain shove there. Is this often enough a bluff so a call to be +EV in the long run?

      Should I check behind Flop and see Turn?

      Might just 4bet pre depending on villian. I check behind flop, don't expect anything better to fold and don't want to get check/raised with overs and a backdoor flush draw. Stab turn if he checks again.

      Fold to check/raise without really good reads. He has to be doing it with stuff like overcards for calling to be +EV.

      since AKs doesn´t always flop tptk then I´d rather like if you 4-bet pf to 10$ and call shove or shove directly yourself.
      Flop: no need to bet, since you beat most of his Ax hands, so I´d be happy to check it down, after you get c/rai you have to fold, since he likely has overpair or flushdraw. Against these ahnds you don´t correct odds.

      4B/push preflop i think that's too loose vs unknown (i assume that he is because I dont see stats)
      playing 4b/f is not good when you put 1/2 effective stack in pot, but after you 4B i think he's pushing with range that beat you - AK/kk+.

      OR maybe he's a fish and you didn't tell us his stats?

      Don't have stats on him. And it's at RushPoker, so I don't use the HUD either.
