      His stats are: 22/14; af:1,14; wtsd:26; w$sd:60; fold to 3b:57, fold to flop cbet:57
      iPoker - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 6 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $4.70
      SB: $6.90
      Hero (BB): $10.10
      UTG: $9.05
      MP: $10.30
      CO: $12.38

      SB posts SB $0.05, Hero posts BB $0.10

      Pre Flop: ($0.15) Hero has K:spade: A:spade:

      UTG raises to $0.35, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $1.10, UTG calls $0.75

      Flop: ($2.25, 2 players) J:diamond: 7:club: 3:club:
      Hero bets $1.50, UTG calls $1.50

      Turn: ($5.25, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      Hero bets $3.50, UTG calls $3.50

      River: ($12.25, 2 players) 8:diamond:
      Hero checks, UTG bets $2.95, fold

      UTG wins $11.44

      Since I 3bet his utg raise and he called i think his range only contains AK, AQ, QQ, JJ, TT.
      In my oppinion he would call the flop with this whole range.
      And since he would be commited to the pot after my turn bet, i think he will fold all AK and AQ hands, maybe exept both diamonds or both clubs and TT also.
      So if I put things right, I will fold out 1,4% hands and he will call with 0,8% hands.
      Is my thinking right here?

      Hi Indahaus!

      I am not re-raising AKs vs UTG raising range preflop. You are izolating your self HU OOP only to his strong range that may contain AKs, QQ+, sometimes only KK+ (remember Blinds re-raise vs UTG open raise). To this range you are huge dog (AKs vs QQ+, AKo is 42 vs 58 with 20% for split)

      Flating here will conceal your actual hand strenght.

      Flop: As agresor c-bet is fine.

      Turn: I am check-folding here, you are behind his range, he will mostlikely not bet AK him self.

      River: Check-fold is fine.
