  • AK

    Im having abit of trouble playing AK and was wondering if my line was ok here.

    I open CO and BU 3bets me i call its HU flop comes Qxx i check he bets i call, turn doesn't improve me what are we doing now folding or making a move on some boards.

    Theres been so many times where ive flatted a 3bet IP or OOP and ended up laying my hand down and it seems to spewy to me surely theres a better line to take.

    Ive had the same problem when i 3bet as well from blinds mainly and i barrel and end up laying my hand down, it dont happen very often but its still enough for me wanting to change my play with AK when i miss.

    What are we doing when we 3bet AK in blinds and BU 4bets me with no reads?

    Ive got all in pre a few times and ended up seeing AK alot so i know a 4bet isnt always gonna be AA KK and i really dont like folding my AK when the BU 3bets me from CO.

    I really don't like flatting 3-bets or 4-bets OOP. With any hand, but especially AK, it's re-raise or fold for me. Make your plan early on. Decide if you're willing to stack off pre or not. If you don't know what you'll do if your 3-bet in the blinds gets 4-bet, then don't 3-bet in the first place.
    Depending on what stakes you play, AK in a 6-max game should probably be in your "stack off pre" range, especially against raisers in late position.

        Fair enough maybe i shouldn't be calling 3bets with AK then.
