Default AK has been a nemesis of mine lately

These are just from the past week and AKs is my largest losing hand. I'm just whining a bit

Your opponents are really good at hitting sets.

And you suck at hitting your A or K.

How much below expectation?

Check back the turn in hand 2. And what's with the 4bet shoving? Do you do that a lot or only with AK?

Regarding hand 2, I know I should be checking back and mis played that hand. I was a bit tilty.

As far as the 4bet shoving.....pretty standard imo. I'm not always doing it, but likely 85% of the time. I'll do the same with QQ+.

Do I hear a suggestion coming on playing AK???

ooops, meant 5bet shove is normal or 4betting to 29ish and calling a shove. There were 2 hands in this set where I 4bet shoved, and both were based on 3bet sizes. In the JJ hand, I opened 5xbb due to a poster, sb raises to 15bb. I can't really go to 29 here can I??

Kind of the same thing vs the AA where I open to 4, he goes to 14.

Maybe there is somethihng to learn here...

I don't think it matters all that much as long as you're playing it the same way you'd play AA. I just insta put people on AK when they 4bet shove.

If someone raises your 5 to 15, the min4bet is to 25. That's what I'd be more likely to do, but like I said that's more a style preference as long as your overall preflop gameplan is balanced.
