This is a discussion on $5 NLHE 6-max: AKo on K-high board within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Full Tilt - $0.05 NL (6 max) - Holdem - 5 players
Hand converted by PokerTracker 4
BB: $7.32 (VPIP: 12.68, PFR: 9.30, 3Bet Preflop: 3.20, Hands:
Hero raises to $0.15, CO raises to $0.52, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.37
--> What about 4-betting here?
Flop:($1.11, 2 players) K♦ Q♣ 7♦ Hero bets $0.92, CO raises to $4.09 and is all-in, Hero calls $3.17
--> Bad bad call. Does anyone think any different? I was very reluctant to call but was greedy enough to still do it. Given his stats, PF 3-Bet, and his flop raise: Would he do that with anything but QQ+?
Turn:($9.29, 2 players) Q♠
River:($9.29, 2 players) 5♥

When CO 3bets pre-, what do you think his range is? He's tight passive, so maybe something like TT+ AK? So 4betting when you're behind his range basically means you're repping a very narrow range and expecting him to fold quite a bit of his narrow range. The current pot odds are 2:1 but you're OOP so while I'd probably call at the table, it may well be -EV to do so.
Bet less on the flop, then fold. He's likely to fold any hand you're beating to any decent-sized amount, and pretty unlikely to be raising with anything you beat.

Smells an awful lot like a set. I mean, what else would he be stacking with at this point. I have to say, I might ressist folding myself in your spot. I would bet half pot here considering he was the pre-flop aggressor.
You have to make tough folds like these Poker, it's what makes a good player. Wish you luck at the tables
