You can go both ways on this. On one side you do block AA and KK, but on the other side you are behind to any pair, and how often do people actually do this with AQ or worse? The fact, someone cold called your 3-bet, would make me lean a little more towards calling it off, because there is that extra dead money in the pot. But I certainly would not classify folding as a mistake.
thanks man, yea I have been doing a bit of reading and it seems there is a consensus to fold if someone else is in the pot and left to act after you, especially if BB calling a 3 bet as in this case.
Thanks I get you, I need to play AK as a preflop drawing hand and not commit so much on it because as you pointed out even against pairs my equity is only like 40 odd percent.No its more of a reason to call, because it gives more incentive for the original raiser to 4-bet, and typically the cold caller is not strong enough to call it off. If he had AA or KK, he would have put in the 4-bet himself most of the time. But even so its a very big jam, and you are not getting good odds against a range, where you are rarely if ever going to be ahead. If he flip over JJ or QQ, this is probably still slightly negative EV, so you are really hoping to see another AK or a wild bluff. I dont think, calling here was a big mistake, but against most players folding is probably slightly better.
Also, given the pot odds you would need to win about 70% of the time
Its 2,14$ for Hero to call off, and if BB fold, then pot is going to be 4,82$. 2,14/4,82=0,444, so Hero need 44,4% equity.
I recommend avoiding these high variance points, especially in micro stakes where players don't tend to bluff too much when pushing preflop.
You made the mistake on the re raise to 0.18. AK is a good starting hand good enough to limp or x3 bet. But that's all it is a STARTING hand It's not really that great until it connects with something.
The opponent made the initial raise in early position so I have to give them at least some respect for having a decent starting hand. You then raised with AK which I don't have a problem with and another opponent called.
I disagree. Calling the 3 bet is what I would have done, no reason to raise because you don't have anything yet. You're dominated by AA, KK and a coin flip for pocket pairs. YOU DON'T BEAT ANYTHING but AQ.. The raise allowed the re raise that's a fold vs a good player.
