      Final Pot: $21.15.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a pair of kings(Kc Kd).
      CO shows a pair of aces(Kh Ah).

      CO wins with a pair of aces(Kh Ah).
      On the flop I planned to check raise but when he bets pot I figure a raise might let him find a hero fold with JJ/QQ so id rather let him keep betting himself. On the river is this a good spot for a blockbet? I figured he would likely make a crying call with JJ/QQ and after blockbetting I can easily find a fold vs. a raise since I rep AK myself.

      I´d likely 4-bet pf and play for stacks but if you want to slowplay pf then it is better to c/r flop and play for stacks, since as you see he would not barrel AK on blank turn card and if he has there JJ/QQ you would like to get all the money all-in on the flop rather than K or A comes on the turn
      Blocking bet river is fine and if he doesn´t shove there even AK you have to b/c that spot, since he then has there just air rather than tp hand
