      HERO?

      When he bets smaller than 3/4 pot on the flop it makes me believe that he is somewhat weak, so I dont put him on ace, rather on some smaller pocket pair,maybe even FD like KQs. If he made a normal size bet I always raise it big and try to get it all in on the flop. On the turn he suddenly bets bigger than flop which leads me to conclusion that he improved. I'm in trouble now and not sure what is the correct play here...Donk the turn? Do I stack off? Just call and check/call river or check/raise river or even maybe reason to check/fold?

      I would raise flop, since it seems to be quite standard c-bet
      Also I would raise turn, since there are a lot of draws and he can b/c there with Ax hands.
      If he 3-bets I think I´m going to shove, since he can play that way also AK

      I shoved after his min 4bet and he happened to have KK which made sense for this 13/10 guy. I had a read and it was so logical that it must be KK because he ALWAYS bets big on that flop if he has AK,AQ,AJ or a set. I was sure he had me beat but didnt follow through because I wasnt playing my A game at the moment + it is hard to let go that strong of a hand for me just yet. Would you ever consider folding on his min 4bet on this board, having in mind his bet sizes and his stats?

      It always seems like you´re beat when you get 3-bet on that board, but wouldn´t you think he would play AK the same way? I think once you raise turn you should shove over his 3-bet since you were decided to go with your hand and I think his 3-bet really shouldn´t change that.
      If you feel he is too strong you always have option just call him down

      You are wright in everything but AK theory. By his betsize on the flop AK is not in his range at that moment. I am sure in that 100%, beacuse he would bet bigger to protect on that flop. Villain is not tricky to make that play.

      well pot is 2.25, I think it is very reasonable play to bet flop AK with 1.34$ although very likely most people bet there 1.5-2$
      But as I said if you feel that player is very strong you always have option just to call him down
