      BTN ($39.65)
      SB ($50)
      HELLutek (BB) ($50)

      Pre-Flop: ($0.75, 6 players) HELLutek is BB K:heart: A:spade:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $1.50, 1 fold, BTN calls $1.50, 1 fold, HELLutek raises to $6.50, UTG+1 folds, BTN calls $5

      Flop: 7:spade: 5:heart: 10:heart: ($14.75, 2 players)
      HELLutek bets $8, BTN goes all-in $33.15, HELLutek folds

      Final Pot: $55.90

      BTN wins $54.40 (net +$14.75)

      UTG+1 lost $1.50
      HELLutek lost $14.50

      Villain is playing 17/0 after ~15 hands.
      First of all I'm not sure if 3bet pf is okay. For most of the time reg folds and fish calls. It's cool to play heads up vs fish, but AK oop is not that funny.
      My plan was to cbet flop and then shove turn (pot would be ~30$ and his stack ~25$) on AKQJ or heart.
      Really don't know how to play flop, any ideas?

      helo.. thats a fold for me too..

      he could have easily hit the 10 .. like A10 hand.. , or hit a pair with flush draw.. or a monster draw..

      over cards with only a runner flush draw is not good enough for me with against a shove raise

      board is not that drawy and consider you have backdoor flushdraw I like your play. Since he shoves on the flop you have to fold
      edit: I would still prefer 3-bet and if he 4-bets I think you can consider folding, but it is good to take initiative, you sometimes take pot down pre-flop or with c-bet or sometimes hit your tptk and can play for stacks
