      iPoker - $0.50 NL - Holdem - 5 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 3

      BTN: $54.82
      SB: $50.00
      Hero (BB): $51.50
      UTG: $83.32
      CO: $52.08 VP:18/PR:18 (11 hands)

      SB posts SB $0.25, Hero posts BB $0.50

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero has A:club: K:club:

      fold, CO raises to $1.50, fold, fold, Hero calls $1.00

      Flop: ($3.25, 2 players) Q:spade: A:heart: 9:spade:
      Hero bets $2.50, CO calls $2.50

      Turn: ($8.25, 2 players) 2:heart:
      Hero bets $6.00, CO raises to $26.25, fold

      Against an unknown I think I should 3B preflop (also vs a known player but I do flat sometimes)
      I didn't really get why he didn't raise the flop if he has AQ,A9 or sets.
      Could it be that he has a FD like KhQh?

      I dont like this donkish line..

      better: 3 bet preflop with aks

      Flop: you are donking against the pfa, in case of a 3 bet u are the aggressor and lead with a cbet the flop! If he calls

      Turn: firing the 2 barrel. The 2h could be open a backdoor draw, otherwise it is a blank and not in his range. In case of a shove, I would fold the turn vs. unknown!

      There could be a set, as well as Axs with a draw in his hand range.

      Agreed and that would be my standart play.
      However I think that from time to time its good to be less predictable and use other lines like this flat donk

      Yes..thats fine as long you have reads and/or a history with a certain player! You have only 11 hands of him, so he is a unknown and I would prefer a standard line!

      I think I´d always 3b that spot AKs, since I want to reduce his hand range that I don´t have to play likely to 22% and he would call worse hands so I don´t have no problem playing postflop. If I hit my tptk it is usually easy bet/shove on the flop.

      As played you likely have to fold, but since your hand is really under represent and he may raise turn with draws I also don´t mind shove. Players usually doesn´t believe that you have there set or two pair, so he may also raise turn for value also with AK
