I pretty much never fold AK to a 3bet unless its from a real tight raiser. Almost all the 3/6 regs are 3betting pretty light and it's more whether I want to call or 4bet. Like BJ said, 4betting more OOP and calling more in position.
Problems is a lot of TAGs i think view 4bet as always being AK and will convince themselves and push 99+ which sucks because you have to end up calling. I really need to work on this too bc i stack off wayyyy to often.
Usually it's when I rr though and get called down and I push turn on low board. I tinhk folding sucks but you have to really play well postflop and not be a spew monkey like myself. Everyone's calling range is pretty damn wide too.
Villain here is 17/11, standard tight TAG.
