wtf are you doing 3-betting this big, 15 to 62, 12 to 60 seriously? with those kind of sizing I assume ur only 4-bet size is a 100bb shove!
Yes you have a point. I have a feeling Andrew probably should have been 3-betting a little smaller, but its not a big mistake.
In particular, I feel like 3-betting minraise opens to large amounts is bad however, just because of the price your getting on the steal. If someone opens to $12, its ok to make it as small as $36.
I think you are way underestimating the value of simply picking up the dead money here by 5 bet shoving. Sure, you may have his range crushed but it's pretty ambitious to think you are winning enough money postflop, out of position, without the initiative, with AK, to make flatting better than shoving. There's over $200 dead in the pot that you can win X% of the time right now by 5bet shoving, and if his range is real wide, then X is a pretty high number.
You really think you're profiting more than that by playing postflop OOP with AK?
