      I'm having a really hard time playing AKo when I miss the flop and there's someone left to act behind me, like in this example. What can I do to play this one better? Or was this all I could do?

      567ss board isn´t really the best board where to c-bet so I think c/f is a little better option. but since you have overcards+backdoor flushdraw I think you can sometimes c-bet and try to barrel him off good turn cards, like Tc, Jc, Q, and bet for value K and A turns
