      Check fold. Qxx board is pretty bad for AK in 4bet pot, esp in rush poker where ranges will be strong. Depending on 4bet calling ranges, you can usually just jam if board is any lower and have enough pot equity + fold equity to be profitable. No idea how to figure this out in rush poker. If you think everyone is playing for nuts and trying to trap you, lean toward check/fold obv.

      That would also by my default line. He's not folding much that we beat on that board unless maybe he's awful and called the 4-bet with a small pocket pair or something, and the more taggish/straightforward he is (like a lot of tags in microstakes rush poker) the more he'll just have a monster in that spot, at the very least TT-JJ that he still might not fold on that board (if he puts on AK, of course :p).


      Hope it helps.
