      Known players:       
      Hero:
      $6,2
      UTG1:
      $4,44

      0,02/0,05 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant.Base 0.99 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:diamond: , K:club:
      UTG1 raises to $0,17, 6 folds, Hero calls $0,15, BB folds.

        Usually, I´d fold here. The reason is that I split against reasonable UTG range and I don´t think I will get a lot of value from weaker hands if I hit (imagine QQ on A high board).

        But this guy is not fullstacked so I considered him bad player. So I think his range also includes worse aces and I am ahead so I want to play against him even oop.

      Flop: ($0,39) K:heart: , Q:heart: , 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,35, UTG1 calls $0,35.

      Turn: ($1,09) T:club: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,9, UTG1 raises to $3,92 (All-In), Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back (All-In).

        I don´t think I am ahead. His line is very strong and I put him on top two, sets, flushes ...

      Final Pot: $2,89

      I´d fold AQ, but AK is too strong to fold
      If you like to lead out then turn is b/f
      Don´t really see him shoving worse hands than yours
      But since board is so drawy I think trying to keep pot small and c/c all 3 streets seem a little better option

      not really, since it is hard him to call you down with worse hands and if you´re going to b/f, then I don´t really like building big pot
