      Hello MikeF,

      Preflop: If you are going to play this way AK than you played it postflop. Then just get it in preflop rather than Call.

      As played
      Postflop: Pretty horrible flop to float against pretty unknown and as well the flop ain't the best for it. Just give it up on flop. Otherwise not much to do as you hit your Ace.

      Best regards.

      One good option, don't take AK as AA or KK or whatsoever. It depends a lot on the opponent either it's a hand to go broke with or not. Basically at the best you might get a coinflip when you going broke preflop against somewhat tightish opponent.

      Try posting more hands from AK and we will try to fix the leaks. One of the big leaks I have seen is playing AKs/AKo not profitable. You could for example take a look your own either you play it profitable or not in your PT3.
