      0,05/0,1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.96 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP3 with Q:spade: , Q:club:
      MP2 folds, Hero raises to $0,30, CO raises to $1,05, 3 folds, Hero calls $0,75.

      Flop: ($2,25) Q:heart: , J:spade: , T:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1,5, Hero calls $1,50.

      Turn: ($5,25) K:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO raises $9,84 (All-In), Hero folds, CO gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

      Final Pot: $5,25

      Villian seems to be TAG/NIT. There is so many AK combos out there than KK/AA's, so what to do? Should I just shoved the flop because of OOP?

      Hello ragney,

      I'd go for Check/Raise on flop since he may Call us still with a lot worse, for example:

      Equity Win Tie Loss Hand
      Player 1: 61,407% 60,366% 2,082% 37,552% QQ
      Player 2: 38,593% 37,552% 2,082% 60,366% KK+, JJ-TT, AQs+, AQo+

      Against this range we get pretty good odds. :) I'd Check/Raise to $5.

      As played turn is likely a fold, we can't beat there much with he is shipping, although I don't really get his shove.

      Best regards.
