      I'm pretty shame for what I have done in this game ^^

      I've realized that on NL10 the PF game is lighter (3bet esp.) ...
      I saw a lot of weaker hands in his range... and I just hate calling 3bet with AK even if I know I'm very often better because I call sometimes OOP, sometimes IP (ofc more often IP) ... but still it doesnt matter :)

      I miss the flop in + 64% of all time so I have to fold ... I have kind of problem with this, can you help me to solve it somehow? I actually don't know what to do. Is it better to don't call 3bets then? I really doubt that it's +EV to call 3bet and fold 64% of flops + some of them loose even if we hit! ...

      That's why I tried something different as I thought he will often bet here with TT,JJ,AK,AJ and it was surely in his 3bet range :)

      Hello KillerFishes,

      Preflop: Depends a lot on the opponent, does he 3bet a lot? Does he CBet a lot? Is he capable of folding some strong hands to Check/Raise? And so on, although while he is near min-raising us then somehow it's doable.
      Postflop: I guess your line is reasonable, that's like the only way we could win the pot, although I am not really sure if we should raise it on flop for the reason that it hits a lot of broadway hands. And I guess I'd just skip this time, although if you see weakness in his betting size then somewhat should be doable.

      Best regards.
