AK and Monotone Flops

UploadUpload Red Chipper Posts: 3 ✭✭
At the time I was unsure what to do in this hand. Villain is 21/19 3Bet 11 over 39 hands. I am 32/27 3Bet 15 over 36 hands. It's Ignition Poker and it's anonymous so there is no data to be collected other than on the table at the time.

I read him a solid TAG probably a reg so when he calls my 4Bet I put him on QQ+ and AK+. I didn't consider how he saw me at the time and I now think his range is a bit wider. He has a pot bet left.

At the time I am thinking I have over 33% equity (I ran it in Flopzilla later assuming QQ folds I have %29 if not %46) and I want to make sure he pays for a fd if he has the Ah. In hindsight I see the flaw in that because I don't beat any of those hands. He folds all his QQ combos if he has AhKx he is free rolling me.

I still don't know how I should have played it. I am leaning towards 1/3 pot and fold to a reraise allin or if he calls try to check it down.

    With SPR right around 1 and flopping top pair I can't see ever folding even on a monotone board.

    Hey Upload,

    I don't mind sizing down a little with the 4 bet sizing. It gives you more SPR postflop and you don't have to generate that many folds to break-even.

    Sizing down to $25 gives you an SPR of about 1.5 and you only need villain to fold about 60% of their range preflop to break-even.
