AK vs crazy aggressive player in wcoop 42 AK vs crazy aggressive player in wcoop 42

(1) The 2 hands are not the same just because you would respond the same way to a substantial 4-bet. They play differently if UTG or the other player calls the 3-bet. I don't know about you but I would much rather have AK and an A hits than 72 and a 7 hits.
(2) The fact that you hold AK makes it far less likely you are up against AA or KK.

+1.

Picking 72 before AK to 3bet with is so so brave ; plenty of graveyards are packed with people of the kind.

the reason we flat is we are never looking to get stacks in with one pair hands this deep

(almost never)

but yeah play a pot have fun splashin

I won't make a comment on this hand, cos i don't play this high and i certainly don't want to be levelling with you guys.

But i see there are so many different opinions by topplayers, that there isn't a ''right'' way to play this hand prelop.

But tell me, what is the most important strategic concept in this hand?

Can't we 3-bet here but choose not to put all our chips in with one pair? (NB we have position)

I would say splashin' is more like flatting AK vs 2 players and inviting one or more others to join in. AK is a POS multiway.

No & NO! What do you think we are ahead of to his 4bing range UTG at 30/60 pre antes?!? 3bing is the play, fold now

Who said anything about playing a pot and splashing? This is an easy iso 3b, if we are 4b by UTG opener his range is polarized and we can fold pre...

I doubt QQ is in his 4b range...

even if you are deep, I like 3bet here. to play HU or make them pay their worst A or small pair.

Now that the raiser UTG put a big 4bet. easy fold ,because we are deep.
but IMO , the fact that we are deep is relevant only after the 4bet, to fold AK, not before to just flat pre.

3bet is fine, faltting the open is fine, Calling the 4bet is a disaster
09-22-2010 , 01:29 PM
Are you guys folding qq here too?

QQ should not be 3-bet.

this has got to be one of the strangest ideas i have ever encountered. u didn't give stats but boosted j is a psycho who would incinerate a thousand dollars just for the novelty. folding is obv very standard but there comes a point where you just aren't folding this to someone, IMO

and dude ^^^ its his first post quit bashing him you heartless twit. never leave op

I'm in the flat pre camp and I'm probably not raising anywhere througout the hand without at least 2 pair.
09-24-2010 , 04:46 AM
I'd flat pre without the flatter but now there's too much value in a 3bet. Either taking it down or getting flatted are good results. Folding to 4bet seems necessary, I doubt most people even have KK in this spot.

This. You can 3bet only AA if you think you won't get exploited. I'd rather see a 3 or 4 way pot with AK vs worse hands than isolate Boosted J preante UTG range while folding out worse hands.

Not really trying to play monster pot with QQ this early.

I would not even 3bet QQ here unless u feel like he is flatting pretty wide and even then u r prolly gonna b in alot of tough spots if he decideds to conitnue or show aggression post flop.
09-25-2010 , 01:45 AM
I don't agree that 3-betting this early is bad in general. However, I don't like 3-betting AK against a tricky aggressive UTG raiser.
09-25-2010 , 03:05 AM
i don't understand this thread. Surely qq+ ak are standard 3bets, along with many bluffs.
09-25-2010 , 03:50 AM
good advice ITT.
09-25-2010 , 06:50 AM
Shove.

TT on bluffing AK
09-25-2010 , 01:42 PM
Think villain is often bluffing. Does he really 4-bet large like this with AA/KK? What hands does he 4-bet for value?

Hard to flat with this hand. Think shove is possible. Might fold even though I don't really believe him.

I wouldn't 3-bet here, but don't see why you shouldn't 3-bet in general this deep. Think you can bluff with suited connectors a lot. Flatting AA/KK loses a lot of value. Can also sometimes 3-bet strong hands and fold to a 4-bet. Never 3-betting seems really passive.
