      I don´t like how you played
      AK is a much better just to 4-bet pf and get all-in than shove over that kind of board that likely hit you opponent
      if you don´t think he has there much then just call flop and check it down or take stab on the turn/river

      hi thanks for your evaluation, 4bet/shove with AK? i haven't been doing that for a very long time against full stacks, as my experience with AK is that i run into AA or KK whenver they go allin preflop. is this the line we should adopt in late vs blinds regardless of stacksizes? we wont apply this line to a UTG openraise right?
      thanks




      Results follow:

      SB shows a straight, ace high(T T).
      Hero shows two pairs, aces and kings(A K).

      SB wins with a straight, ace high(T T).

      4-bet7calling shove with AK- it usually depends the aggression on the games. If blind 3-bet you a lot then you can 4-bet also lighter which means they can´t really 3-bet fold any more TT/JJ or maybe even AQ which means they are either going to call or start shoving worse hands
      But if blinds are nits, like 5/5 then 4-betting with AK has no positive effect , since you indeed face too many times AA/KK
      I think it depends who raises UTG, if player is loose then I don´t really see why we can´t play there for stacks
