      Hold'em No-Limit, $50.00 (HHConverter by Kreatief)
      Visit HHDealer to purchase hand histories from a range of sites, game types and stakes.

      Hero ($149.60)
      MP3 ($148.75)
      CO ($97.50)
      BTN ($113.50)
      SB ($24.49)
      BB ($158.15)

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with K:club: A:spade:
      Hero raises to $1.75, MP3 calls $1.75, CO raises to $7.75, BTN calls $7.75, 2 folds, Hero raises to $26.00, 3 folds,

      CO is 25/16/1,7 3bet 2,7 and fold to 3bet is 50% (244 hands)
      BU is 21/16/3,3 3bet 5,7

      Is it ok to 4bet here. I dont like calling and playing AK OOP. Also i feel that folding is too weak.
      If I get 5bet from CO, what is the best play then ?

      3bet 2.7 and he folds , hmm he probably had complete air , as for BTN he can call wide there assuming you and MP3 can call too so he can have great implied odds to make a pocket pairs call profitable.Against the CO i'd say your AK 4bet is kinda a bluff because if he shoves you are against AA/KK and it will be super though.But as you have blockers to the AA/KK i like the 4bet.I hope you had a clear idea what to do against a shove.With these deep stacks this should never be a stack off.

      If remember correctly, at this time his 3bet was bigger.
      I planned 4bet folding, but dont know if it was the best.

      What do you mean by "3bet was bigger" he was 3betting something like 9$+ instead of 7.75$ or this 3bet(7.75$ was a bigger than his actual 3bets)?

      Also i like your line of 4bet folding if you don't like playing AK OOP with these deep stacks which will be definitely though spot.
      10/10 from me we think the same :P :P

      it seems like good squeeze spot, so i think 4-bet there is fine.
      Likely if you don´t have any history against players you can fold to 5-bet shove.
      Also I think it is fine to call and play fast your tptk hand.
