      I think it's strange but still fine against such a stack. You are going to be OOP if you 3bet pre and by cbetting you are going to be committed or close to that, so I think shoving makes your decisions easier. You may call pre and hope to hit flop but I think AKs is just too strong to do that and you will miss most of the times anyway.

      Hi,


      I'd just make a standard 3-bet, shove over a 4-bet and felt it postflop on most flops if he just calls. You'll see people calling you BUvsBlinds with hands that AK crushes, and stuff like low pocket pairs can't handle the pressure postflop on many flops with overcards, so overall I expect villain to fold somewhere along the way often enough to make felting AK profitable on very many flops.

      When you just jam 50bb in their face you don't give them the chance to stick around with marginal holdings unless they're calling you very loosely, so it's no surprise that when you're called you'll get shown a big pair that you lose to more often than not.


      Hope it helps.
