      Hello,

      in this hand, I didn't 3bet preflop with AKs because I was playing against a quite tight player- 14/9/2.8/108 (he was in MP3 though) and I saw more profit in playing him post flop IP...and I didn't want to go broke preflop against him with AK.

      Flop- he showed weakness on a board that was ideal for a cbet (his cbet% was 67). Was my bet OK? I wanted to make him fold some lower PPs.

      Turn- Should I 2nd barrel a brick like this?

      River- I don't think I can make better hands to fold often enough.

      What do you think about this hand?

      Thanks!

      Hello Dback357,

      As he Check/Calls the flop then I'd rather prefer giving it up as well. It really seems like we are beat and we can't be even sure that he is going to fold some of weaker pairs. But overall your play seems to be fine.

      Best regards.
