      NL Holdem $0.25(BB) Replayer
      SB ($27.13)
      BB ($38.85)
      UTG ($12.17)
      UTG+1 ($39.02)
      Hero ($27.02)
      MP1 ($24.09)
      MP2 ($23.25)
      CO ($23.95)
      BTN ($10)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: K:club:

      UTG raises to $0.75, fold, Hero calls $0.75, fold, fold, fold, fold, fold, BB calls $0.50

      FLOP ($2.35) K:spade: J:diamond: 5:diamond:

      BB checks, UTG bets $1.60, Hero calls $1.60, BB folds

      TURN ($5.55) K:spade: J:diamond: 5:diamond: 4:spade:

      UTG bets $3.70, Hero folds

      UTG wins $5.28


      Is this the right line to take here? Guessing we should always call pre, should I ever be stacking off after his turn bet, can't see anything that I'm ahead against, best scenario would be AK.

      Have 600 hands on this guy, he plays 9/9 from early position, cbet 59, turn cbet 80, agg 5.9.

      AK is ahead 9% so I would prefer putting pressure against UTG and 3-betting pf. If he wants then I´m playing for stacks
      Postflop I like raising flop and playing for stacks or if you just want to call flop you can´t really fold on blank turn since he would barrel there for value AK/KQ and has million draws with AQs, ATs, sometimes also even with QsJs
