$5/$10 cash game at Commerce Casino (Los Angeles) NLHE, $500 - $1500, 9-handed
V1 is younger guy, unknown, looks like a reg or grinder. Eff. 1350
V2 is older guy I played with before. Recreational player. Loose preflop, saw him bluff postflop, but I don't see him get involved with 3! pots often though. Eff. 1500
H MP AsKs 30, V1 CO 125, V2 C, others F, Hero?
I thought about my options here. I can 4-bet with intention of calling a shove, 4-bet with the intention of folding to a shove, or flat call his raise and play OP postflop.
My default play against one opponent like this is to shove for maximum fold equity. The reason is because I know that AKs against a range of QQ+ and AK is about 41%. Therefore, if he folds hands like TT and JJ, this is a great play. If he calls with those hands, then my equity can go up to 47%.
However, this situation is uniquely different. The V2 who cold-called almost never has AA or KK. His range is pretty face-up - something like 99-JJ, AQ, and AK.
Pot is already 280 preflop. If I call here for 95 more, I am looking at SPR of about 4 (1500 / 375), out of position. Very awkward.
What do you think? Would you 4-bet shove, 4-bet to something like 400 and commit on any flop, or flat call to hope to spike A, K, or flush draw?
