AKo vs Cold 4bet

At this point in the tournament, i'm 21 out of 150 nowhere near bubble. The CO has been fairly tight, but folds to 3bets often. When cold 4bet by the SB, are we ever folding pre or shove for 48BB?



PokerStars - 400/800 Ante 100 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 6 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

CO: 14.57 BB (VPIP: 19.96, PFR: 12.74, 3Bet Preflop: 2.19, Hands: 539)
Hero (BTN): 53.28 BB
SB: 45.67 BB (VPIP: 21.11, PFR: 7.95, 3Bet Preflop: 2.63, Hands: 90)
BB: 33.02 BB (VPIP: 23.53, PFR: 18.75, 3Bet Preflop: 33.33, Hands: 17)
UTG: 65.15 BB (VPIP: 23.75, PFR: 17.83, 3Bet Preflop: 4.92, Hands: 167)
MP: 12.5 BB (VPIP: 29.79, PFR: 24.18, 3Bet Preflop: 13.79, Hands: 99)

6 players post ante of 0.13 BB, SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

Pre Flop: (pot: 2.25 BB) Hero has K A

fold, fold, CO raises to 2.5 BB, Hero raises to 5.62 BB, SB raises to 11.75 BB, fold, fold

Hero ??

Re: AKo vs Cold 4bet

I think I'd size up my 3bet a little bit, but yeah this guy has a 2% 3bet and now hes basically clicked us for a cold 4bet. I wouldn't be surprised if this was only KK+. Given the price you're getting I cant blame you if you flat and play post IP - but I dont hate a fold either.

Re: AKo vs Cold 4bet

Even with only 90 hands, I don't think SB is making this play light. If we think that he's only making this play with KK+, then we should strongly consider folding. With AK however we block a portion of his 4bet bluff hands (AJ, AQ, A5s e.g) and also a portion of his value hands that dominate us (AA, KK), so we can tenuously put JJ and QQ very much into his range...I can't imagine he's getting out of line here though.

I think if we flat, and flop a K, we might just have to get crippled here. I personally think a shove vs this specific villain is a bad choice.

Size up 3bet more for one. His 4bet was also terribly small, giving you odds to call with almost any 2 here. Call 5.5bb to win 20bb? Take that anyday w/ AK in position. You literally can never fold in this spot. The only fold would be if you saw his cards and he had AA. You are even getting better odds to call if he showed KK.
