Hi, villain that 4B is playing 25/16/0 over just 62 hands.

What to do in this spot ?
What would you do with AK here as well ?

Well played.

AK should be played the same way.

I would push. Dead money in the middle makes this spot breakeven at worst. Same with AK.

Nice hand.

I would shove both AK and QQ. Although villain's line looks strong he is only shortstacked and there's already so much dead money in the pot that you only need around 40% equity to shove. If you feel like people will have a fairly strong range here stick to calling {QQ+,AK}. As soon as you may see some JJ/AQ or even worse like random Ax/bluffs then JJ/TT can be shoved profitably too.

How do you work out that were break even here with the dead money in the pot?

Every time ive shoved my QQ here i get owned by KK and AA. Actually every time i get 4bet i see AA and KK, every time ive 4bet then i start to see AK and QQ that players are not folding at 5nl after they 3bet.

Obviously using the words every time is abit of an exaggeration but i know for a fact that i see AA and KK here more often than AK QQ at 5nl.
