      I always 3bet a little bigger than normally if I'm OOP. Like here I would 3bet preflop to 6.5-7$ , I do this also with AA/KK/QQ/JJ etc, not just AK. After he calls your flop bet and you don't hit your A or K on turn, it's check/fold.

      Make a bigger reraise preflop! Against weak opponents I also make a c-bet but typically you get called and have to give up on the turn, so I think c/f is fine here - he often has a pocket pair that you don't get to fold.
