      Hi,


      You can't 3-bet/fold AKo against a halfstack really, even if you do the math you'll find you need to call it off unless pretty much any range except KK+, and there is no way the range of a halfstacking fish is that tight, ever.

      So standard, nice hand. Next time you'll win the flip.


      Hope it helps.


      Hey how about that, 3k posts for me ;)
