$2-$3 NLHE - facing a 3! w/ AK

irwinbetirwinbet Posts: 383Subscriber
$2-$3 NLHE. $200 - $600.
Effective stacks: $575
Opponent: young Asian kid in the BB. has been opening a lot pre but not a maniac.
Hero: UTG with a tight, neutral image. I am the effective stack.
Preflop: $6 stradle OTB. We are 7 handed. I open to $25 UTG w/ AK. A straight forward player in the HJ calls. folds to villain in the BB who raises to $100.
The question is what's your play & why? Call or raise? And if you raise, do you shove or use a different sizing?

    If you call you build a 3 SPR pot (comitting) so calling is the worst way to commit. You could stop and go shove here, jam is good as well, I could argue this is not a great spot and fold is "reasonable" but some will not like that. Reason is, with the straightforward third player in the hand, your equity here is compromised.

    Jam you are less than 100 bb deep. Some dead money in the pot. Happily jam.

    I don't mind a flat here if it looks like we could get HU

    Then we miss flop and just fold? We hit an A or a K and get no value? Flatting sucks...especially here as we are so shallow

    Idk what hands call a shove here for almost 200bb we do good against. I'm assuming his range in this spot isn't wide at all.

    I guess we could 4b to like 225-250ish and get it in Evey flop too.

    I like us having positon here with us being deep enough to play post.
