i 3bet to get value from worst hands like Ax, against pairs its about 50/50, and if he 4bets its definitely a fold and plus we have initiative on the flop although we are oop. that is what i thought when i 3bet maybe its wrong how i think but most times i like to 3bet Ak preflop and some times i like flat calling with Ak only in position and especially with lag players
