      Hi FunkyD0nkey,

      If I were you I would probably do the same.
      But if I put myself in the villain position at the turn.
      I might just fold the hand if what I got is just a flush draw.
      So I'm guessing it might still be okay to bet at the river?

      Note I read it on some articles when you have AK preflop it's best to just go all-in.
      It has a better chance of winning this way. I wonder what's the judges opinion on this.

      Peace :f_frown:

      Thank you for the comment. I should have bet like 0,55 so the pot on the river would be 1,8 and my stack size would be 0,72 and since the villain didn't raise on flop/turn he probably doesn't have two pair+. And also i need to be ahead only 22% of the time so maybe easy shove?:D

      I think this guy can have any Ace on the River so I valueshove the River because you check to check/fold because he simply bets the nuts and checks back hands you have beat (AND still can get value from)

      Best regards,
