      1st hand : I wouldn't 3-bet UTG with AKo I would prefer calling and playing the hand postflop, certainly fold to the 4-bet.

      2nd hand: I think you can 3-bet here easy but fold to the 4-bet.

      Depends on how tight UTG is, you want to just call as amplifyd suggested, but i usually 3-bet as a standard.

      That said, once you get 4-bet you can either fold if he's tight or shove if he's loose enough, just calling is the worst option by far.


      Hard to say since it's BUvCO, people are 3-betting light more and more often even at microstakes, and most likely started 4-betting small a bit to combat that too. It's probably still a fold to the 4-bet against most players, but i wouldn't mind 5-bet jamming against the most aggressive tags.

      Calling will leave you with just about a potsized bet on the flop against a range a bluffs/AK/JJ+, forcing you to fold A and K high flops, and going broke on all other boards hoping he's bluffing or has AK, which accounts for like 16 AK + x bluff combos against 10 combos of JJ+, knowing sometimes he won't c-bet AK on some boards. It's just asking for troubles in my opinion, you're likely better off just folding until you have a better handle on his 4betting range.

      Hope it helps.
