      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      €0.05/€0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      10.05
      6.71
      10.72
      16.77
      2.23
      11.49


      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      MP2 raises to €0.40, MP3 folds, Hero raises to €1.20, 3 folds, MP2 raises to €3.00, Hero calls €1.80.

      Flop: (€6.15) T, 8, T (2 players)
      MP2 bets €4.00, Hero folds, MP2 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $6.15.


      i thought that his holdings was likely to be JJ+,AK, and he was likely to hold onto the feared AA or KK although not very likely. i decided to call down the 4bet pot and go broke if i hit A or K and fold if nothing comes

      You will make a pair or better around 33% I think. If his range is JJ, AK+, your flop equity vs his stack off range is going to be meh since he might get away from JJ QQ on Ax, Kx. When you consider the 67% of times that you have to check/fold the flop, your plan is massive -EV. Better to either fold to 4bet, or shove depending on player.

      Just shove or fold pre depending on the player.

      If this is shorthanded you jam pre-flop.
      Calling 4bets 100bb deep with AKo is plain terrible... also think about this... are you ever flat calling vs a 4bet with Kings or Aces here?

      If it's full ring and/or villain is kind of nitty then fold vs a 4bet but in all other cases please get it in.

      After 4-bet I´d shove AK
