      Dealt to Hero A:spade: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, MP1 raises to $0.40, Hero raises to $1.20, fold, fold, fold, fold, MP1 calls $0.80

      FLOP ($2.55) 4:heart: K:spade: 7:club:

      MP1 bets $1.50, Hero raises to $4.50, MP1 folds

      villain is 15/8/2.3
      Looking at his line in hindsight i reckon he has AK here basically 100% maybe QQ or JJ trying to protect.

      Is my raise the best method to extract value. Or should i just call for pot control and try and let him hang himself?

      Hello Wacko118,

      Don't like the raise that much on flop. You are practically just forcing all weaker hands out and making better to continue. Might at the best be against Kx but if he has it he is anyways going broke by betting all streets himself. No need to raise, we don't need to protect and also by river we will have his stack anyways. Rather Call and keep bluffs/weaker hands in the play.

      Best regards.
