  • 10Nl 6-max Zoom AKo PF

    Hi, villain on button is playing 25/25/27 over just 58 hands. The BB is unknown. How should we play this hand ? Cheers!

    Not a fan of a 3-bet shove pre with AKo at 100 BB deep. Call and re-evaluate on the flop.

    Good decisions are what poker is all about.

      If the btn is overly aggressive, then I don't mind 4bet squeezing here since the btn has position on you. Hopefully you will win the pot without going to the flop. Calling as Joe mentions can also work since you are presumably ahead of a large portion of the btn's range. You can see the flop and reevaluate without investing too much.

      If you are going to 4b, I would make it smaller. Moving all in is too heavy and will get you value owned.

        I broadly agree with Greg's thought process, but I think fp played this fine, actually. 4-betting small just puts you in a weird spot, as it allows the button to shove on you. Are you going to fold AK if villain shoves, when there's all that dead money in the pot?
        Much of AK's value comes from fold equity, and you maximise that fold equity by jamming. If you get called, you're usually behind, but you've still got equity.

        FWIW, I think I 3-bet AK less often than almost any regular (I like seeing flops), but this is a spot where I'm 4-bet jamming nearly always, especially against an aggro button, small sample size notwithstanding.
