      again, AK played badly:

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.04(BB) Replayer
      SB ($1.30)
      BB ($1.56)
      UTG ($1.20)
      Hero ($4)
      UTG+2 ($5.04)
      MP1 ($4.21)
      MP2 ($7.33)
      CO ($5.39)
      BTN ($4.23)

      Dealt to Hero A:club: K:diamond:

      fold, Hero raises to $0.16, fold, fold, fold, CO raises to $0.32, fold, fold, fold, Hero raises to $0.90, CO calls $0.58

      FLOP ($1.86) 6:heart: 4:club: T:diamond:

      Hero checks, CO bets $0.68, Hero calls $0.68

      TURN ($3.22) 6:heart: 4:club: T:diamond: 3:diamond:

      Hero checks, CO bets $0.88, Hero folds

      CO wins $3.06

      i thought that since i was OOP i should probably not just flat call so i decided to raise. i expected a push from hands like AA/KK/QQ but on the flop i felt lost so decided to check. should i have cbet here? and i probably decided to call since it is unlikely he has hit the board either so i thought i could pick the pot up on the turn. with the 3 :diamond: i just thought if i bet out, it's unlikely he will believe i have anything more than a flush draw so he will probably call. again, not sure what i should do with AK.

      i feel like i've been playing AK/QQ too weak so i've tried to play them a little more but it's backfiring.

      Hello DrDunne,

      Well, even if you played it this way then I don't like the idea of CBetting at all on such a board. You most likely will only overpairs there. Rather just give up directly, even against such a bet. So Check/Fold. :)

      Best regards.
