      Looking back at this play and I think I made some massive mistakes, but I'm not sure what. 3betting with AKs I guess is kind of standard, so I think that's ok. Get the nut flush draw on the flop with 2 overcards. At this point, even if I put him as calling my 3bet with just 5% of hands, then I have an equity of 65%.

      So I'm guessing I'm ahead, problem is, he leads with the bet. Not to sure what it would mean, I mean the flop is kind of yuck for him, I guess that might've hit him if he'd played pocket tens or maybe 8s? Guess that Tens would be in his range...

      Turn, I dunno why I called. Was just a gut instinct. Cannot puzzle out whether this was a good or bad move, same with the turn.

      Should I have played this another way? I'm thinking that I should have called on the river given the great pot odds. But I just felt that he had me beat...

      Hello rudders93,

      Even if you Call the flop then you can't Call the turn profitable in long run, you will loose a lot of money by playing this way. You don't have any implied odds there. Turn should be standard fold. :( There is no gut-instinct play and even if you expected the opponent to be bluffing then why didn't you just ship it or play aggressively on flop?

      Best regards.
