  • Big $8.80 Tournament, AK facing 4-bet

    It is Big $8.80 with 10min regular blind structure. How to play AK preflop? Should I 5-bet or call the 4-bet or fold? I made a mistake I wanted to 3x but by mistake I min raised. And after that someone 3-bet me and one more player 4-bet. STATS :

          There's nothing like a hand like this to bring out my inner nit

          This is a really unusual spot but I'd just fold to the 4Bet action. We min opened UTG and got 3Bet from UTG+1. Even though UTG+1 villain is probably a fish with his sizing, I'd still anticipate the 4Bet range to be very strong. I'm not too worried about the cold-caller on the button.

          I don't really like calling here, because you'll likely be out of position 4-way and you don't close the action and you don't know what UTG+1 is capable of. Also I think we're even less likely to flop an A than usual because of card removal, it's pretty likely there are other Ax combos out there, if not AA. However the huge pot and being able to make the nut flush might be factors in favour of a call.

          Raising is also an option, particularly if the 4Bettor is a reg who figures that UTG+1 might be weak and he can just take down a pot here and now. If you were to raise, it would have to be all-in, this seems like a very large risk to take.

          So, I favour a fold. We've only invested 2BB and still have a large stack and I wouldn't bet on you facing too many spots like these in the future!
