      Tight/unknown early position open so I decide to just flat So that I can play OOP without the initiative because I'm a donk that flops lucky. Should I just be 3-bet calling off his stack from the blinds with AK or is the flat okay since its vs an unknown?

      Known players:

      0.05/0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (8 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.98 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , K:heart:
      UTG2 raises to $0.35, 5 folds, Hero calls $0.30, BB calls $0.25.

      Flop: ($1.05) K:diamond: , K:club: , 3:heart: (3 players)
      Hero checks, BB checks, UTG2 bets $0.52, Hero raises to $1.40, BB folds, UTG2 calls $0.88.

      Turn: ($3.85) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $2.4, UTG2 raises to $4.70 (All-In), Hero calls $2.30.

      I would def 3 bet pre. Your ahead of most of his range and if he was raising with QJ or something then you would probs get a fold. He had 60bb so he woudnt have 4bet shoved pre.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Preflop: I don't really like the Call vs such a stack. Rather 3bet or just fold the hand here.

      As played
      Postflop: Don't like the Check/Raise either, he will very often fold very weak hands. Rather just donk it and as played I am as well going broke. Nothing much you can do there.

      Best regards.

      He had AA, the only hand that could pay me off. I was very lucky here. It's very clear how badly I played this.
