Hi adi,

Since we opted to 3B, I would have planned ahead of time to 5b rip if he 4-bets me. He's 4b 1/3 times already I assume and is pretty TAG. The important thing is to have a plan for your hand, think about how you'll respond to a 4b before you 3b his UTG open.

On this depth vs. an UTG open I would often flat AK and play the pot in position, but if I did 3b it's not to fold to a 4b, and calling is an option but not super on 46bb effective, so I lean towards shipping it with fold equity now.
