re: Poker & [100nl FR] AK vs big positional raise
That was another option. I actually really like it too.
Something I've thought a lot about is 4-bet sizing and balance. I realize this is a 3-bet but it's close enough since he's raising so much that it pretty much reaches the sizing
of a 3-bet, and my actual 3-bet reaches the size of a 4-bet.
Anyways what I'm getting at is that we can provide ourselves with some really nice balance by 4-betting smaller. When we have lesser hands (see AK, others) in spots like these, we want to give ourselves room to get out of the way (hence raising to 25), and since, with 100bbs, we're never giving 'good' odds
to our opponent with a 4-bet, we can still make that small 25bb raise and get value while still charging our opponent.
Against an unknown or a 'bad' opponent I won't even bother since balance doesn't matter with them, but against the decent regulars it's something that I'm looking at trying.
