[NL25]AK UTG against 3bet Stars

PokerStars
5 players
Formatted by pokercopilot.com: Poker HUD for Mac and Windows

Stacks:
UTG - Hero ($47.40)
CO - CO ($26.84)
BTN - BTN ($26.26)
SB - SB ($72.89)
BB - BB ($25.00)

Preflop: ($0.35, 5 players) Hero is UTG with K A
Hero raises to $0.75, 1 fold, BTN raises to $2.75, 3 folds, Uncalled bet of $2.00 returned to BTN

Total Pot: $1.85

BTN wins $1.85

Hi not very specular this hand, but I have some doubts what is the best line to play here?
This Hand is against a Reg, (don't have a big sampling rate of his hand).
I don't really like the fold to the 3bet, but if I 4 bet and I face a 5 bet I have to fold, if I call and I hit a A or a K, I am also not in a very nice spot OOP, also often I don't hit anything and then what do I do, play C/R?

Would be nice to get some feedback how to play AK here OOP.

Re: [NL25]AK UTG against 3bet Stars

The 2 options are call and 4-bet, fold is incorrect whatever his range can be. If you 4-bet you have to call a 5-bet, 100bbs deep getting AK all-in pre is often standard. If V is a huge nit you can flat the 3-bet. You're getting 2 to 1 to flat and that's pretty much the odds to flop pair+ on the flop.

We can't fold the 3rd best starting hand PF against a 3-bet.

I agree, you are right like always. But I would not get it AI pre with 100 bb, I mean against some fish yes, but against a REG the best thing I will ever get is a coin flip.

Re: [NL25]AK UTG against 3bet Stars

Is it worth building an UTG limping range?

I guess flat if you think he's a nit with a really tight 4-bet range, but we have blockers and one of the best hands, I try to get as much money in pre with this hand as I can, especially when you're talking 100BBs or less.

No reason to fold here. Just flat and see what the flop brings. It's okay to lose AK after calling a 3B on the flop. If the flop gives you **** then it's an easy fold.
