      Hi ukwagon!

      Preflop:

      99% times when you are entering POT as first or second player you want do it with raise.

      AKo is hand that does not play well multiway (when you hit TPTK type of hand). When you hit TPTK you want to be HU and in that case you would like to stack of with this hand most of the times.

      Therefore raise here to (4+1) BB ~ $0.1 to narrow field and stay HU with the fish.

      As played:

      Flop:
      Donk it and let workse Ax hands pay you of. Bet 3/4 - POT here due to Flush/str8 draws are possible to protect your hand and let draws pay you off.

      Turn:
      Flush completed. We may bet/fold unless players are really tricky and semiblufh with Ax:spade: hand.

      River: We have top trip top kicker. His raise is not nice, but we need to call $1.52 to win $3.88 POT, therefore we need to win it 39% of the time and we cannot fold here. He can be as well raising here with worse Aces than we have sometimes.

      Giving MP2 range for his river raise AT+, 99, KsJs, QsKs, we have 67.5% equity here.
