      Hi. Should I c-bet? There are many Kx in his range, not sure if I could make him fold some trash. On turn I see myself behind, villain could not bet with worser hands. Was the fold right? Thanks :)

      I think you should go all-in on the flop. He shoves AK preflop most of the time and you block KQ so he doesn't have that many Kx combos, on the other hand you want to bet against draws and weaker made hands like AT, JJ.

      Hey JohnDoe1313,

      Your raise size preflop is not chosen well because it leaves you with unplayable SPR on the flop. Either go all-in preflop straight away or raise to ~0.30$ so you have some manoeuvrability postflop and you can bet/fold.

      As played, I still think bet/fold as played is better than a shove, but not too good with such a low SPR as you are very commited.

      Best regards,
