      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , K:spade:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0.12, CO folds, Hero raises to $0.40, SB calls $0.38, 2 folds.

      SB checks, Hero raises $0.77 , SB calls $0.77 (All-In).

      River: ($3.77) 6:spade: (2 players)

      Final Pot: $3.77

      Results follow (highlight to see):
      Hero shows a pair of kings (Ac Ks)
      SB shows (Js Ts)

      Hero wins with a pair of kings (Ac Ks)

      I know one of the most common mistakes is "over-playing AK"... so I'm anxious to know whether I played it correctly in this situation; both pre-flop (when faced with a raise from middle position) and with my cbet on the flop.

      I'm 99.5% sure I played it correctly, but that could just be because I won.

      Thanks :f_love:

      Hello Zareos,

      The problem is that his calling range hardly hit on flop. :( Therefore I might even just Check it behind while he doesn't have much left anyways. Otherwise seems to be fine, although it's rarely a spot where we will be 100% ahead. :D

      Best regards.
