      Hi snaker,

      I always 4b pre in this situation. By calling you get into a really tough spot oop with AKo and you lose all the FE you'd get by a push pre flop. When you get called for an AI, AK still has very decent equity.

      EDIT: besides, players tend have a looser range for squeezing. ;)

      Judges are saying something like that.


      If you play your AK and you hit flop your are going all in anyway so you can push 4bet/call easyly if you dont have info that villian is anly 3betting with AK,AA,KK. Those players have 3bet range 2% or maybe 3%
