  • 25NL - AK facing 4bet 133bb effective stack

    CO 11/11 (20) BB 20/17/8 (160) 3bet 6% (49) Squeeze 17% (6) What's your plan with AKo OOP with 133bb stack? In game, I missed on the BB stats and I totally disregarded my stack size! I 3bet here and we got 4bet. Now what?! (To avoid making two mistakes - well three in this case, I just folded to the 4bet) I think I should have flatted, and if the BB squeezes and CO folds we could go for a 4bet? What do you think?

    I would personally take a call here and just give up if you don't flop something.
    Don't go mental though if you do hit. QQ+ and AK is what you are up against mostly and they could have hit their set.

    Alternatively you could 5-bet and call a shove. Against an unknown like this I would prefer calling the 4 bet though, or just folding isn't a big mistake probably.

    As for the situation where we call and the BB squeezes, I would happily 5-bet and call a shove.
    Provided the CO folded. If the CO calls or 5-bets / shoves I am probably just folding.

      We don't really have enough hands against the CO to know what is going to be best. There are some players we should have just flatted against to avoid three-bet/folding and there are some players we should five-bet/call to induce. Here I think our best option is to call, which is going to be a bit better than folding.

      I think starting with a flat call here wouldn't be the worst option preflop but three-betting is hard to believe as a mistake. You don't have to play totally fit or fold postflop either.

      What we know though is that over 20 hands villain is 11/11 so we definitely don't want to stack off preflop here with this hand in these positions.
