      opponent was a decent played and he could have here ak aq aj a10 easily
      i decide not to raise flop because except the FD the board is kind of dry and i think by calling preflop he puts my range on a small set and may fold hands like a q a j . i decide to call in orther for him can put me on a flush draw and fire a second barrel on turn . i am raising here in order to try to make him push this turn . is my thinking bad ?

      If I had Ak I would like to play bet/fold these turns. But still I think re-raising turn is fine, only thing he can´t never call here- he have to push or fold. So you might consider calling turn and calling river. One more strange thing he bets pot on the turn, so he might put you on the flush draw and like to what you have.

      I think its well played. I don't expect him to stack off always with AK on the turn as Kaitz20 argued, but its a good line to get a flop and a turn bet from him.

      unfortunately i give him a free card too that can improve his/hand ... he had 45d for a flush draw and he hited in the river ... thats always the risk but i think it is little

      Right, but our goal is not to protect to the max, but maximize our EV - from this point of view, the hand is very well played
