      UTG+1: $6.62
      MP1: $2.36
      MP2: $0.35
      CO: $5.25
      BTN: $2.15
      Hero (SB): $1.96
      BB: $5.00
      UTG: $5.00

      Pre Flop: ($0.03) Hero is SB with A :heart: Q :spade:
      5 folds, BTN raises to $0.06, Hero raises to $0.18, 1 fold, BTN calls $0.12

      Flop: ($0.38) 2 :club: 6 :club: K :club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.20, BTN raises to $0.97, Hero raises to $1.78 all in, BTN calls $0.81

      Turn: ($3.94) 8 :club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      River: ($3.94) A :diamond: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      Final Pot: $3.94 BTN shows 9 :club: T :club: (a flush, King high) Hero shows A :heart: Q :spade: (a pair of Aces) BTN wins $3.75

      First of all,i had no notes on him whatsoever,it was the 10th hand i think from that table.
      Second of all,pre-flop i immediately put his blind steal range on 66-22,A9s-A2s,KJs-K9s,Q9s+,J9s+,T9s,98s,87s,76s,65s,54s,43s,32s,KJo-K9o,Q9o+,J9o+, because of the 3BB raise.

      Post-flop i Cbet to keep initiative.When i saw his raise,i thought that he is trying to steal the pot using the suited board to bluff,so i snapped shoved to give the impression that i held the flush.

      In retrospect,i played the hand terribly,altough i was 70% sure that he is trying to steal the pot on the flop.The board was fitting with his range.Lesson learned.

      Hello furculision,

      Welcome to the NL BSS Hand Evaluation Forum! Hopefully we will see more hands from you in the future, so we will be able to help you fix your leaks and as well help move up the limits. We will be waiting for the next hands and till that good luck on tables!

      About the hand:
      First of all, if I even had a hand like AK I would have hard time shipping/calling his raise there. His raise rather seems to be very strong and rather for value than a bluff. Therefore it's a big mistake to just go broke there with A high, in long run you will loose a lot money there.

      Small tip for you, definitely post more hands it seems that you have a lot of leaks in your play and you kinda put the opponents very often on some kind of bluffs and this costs definitely for you a lot money. Having leak definitely in going broke with TPTK type of hand and as well of course with TP type of hands and maybe even at some spots with 2pairs and else.

      Best regards.
