Pre flop: I picked up ⬆️ AKo utg so I min raised the utg+1 re raised and the button 4 bets all in . Instantly knew I was up against a pair. So instead of a race situation I decided to fold and boy was I right. Would you call 📞? Thank you 🙏 for your comment.

Good fold, I'd personally also fold myself to 2 people in pot 3-betting and 4-betting. With one being all in and assuming UTG+1 is also going all in you most likely aren't looking even at a coin flip with your hand. Another thing to consider is that this is most likely the start of the tournament with blinds being at 15/30 so you still got time to build a stack.

The 4bet shove v UTG open and UTg+1 3bet is very strong, so AK is in bad shape and I think fold the best play.

This will be based on what you know about villains. We start the hand with less than 50 BBs which based on the blind levels my guess would be 50 BBs is starting stack but not sure. I dont think it is terrible to get 50 BBs in pre with AK as long as the situation is right (don't misconstrue this, I'm not saying always or the even the majority of time do it just saying there are scenarios where it can make sense) meaning we have stats on both villains and they are crazy loose. If we are going against players that vpip less than 25% of time and have 3 bet %s that are in the single digits then facing a 3 bet and then a cold 4 bet... then this is a fold as you did since the best we could hope for against the cold 4 would be flipping to the bad against a pair where we have two overs and that pair is likely 1010+ so we would be 43/57 flipping (again, thats at best scenario). If we have the stats though where 3 bettor and 4 bettor are 45/40/27 players (which you will find somwhat common at the micros) then I dont think its bad to go with it here.

Dude, thanks for sharing. I would pay easily. With time I have learned to contain myself. I already fold with AJ but AK and AQ I'm still disciplining myself for that. Seeing a hand like that makes me understand the right path and improve my game.

Exactly. If Hero opened on BTN, SB repopped, and BB then jammed, then I would call it off. But because most of the action here is from EP, AKo is almost an easy fold.

Hello I would play just like you did, especially when they go all preflop. I just want to know where you played an MTT of 0.25 because in PS. And GG I didn't see them
