      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: PokerStrategy.com Elephant 0.104 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , K:heart:
      UTG2 calls $0.02, MP1 raises to $0.10, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.10, 2 folds, UTG2 calls $0.08.

      Flop: ($0.33) A:diamond: , T:spade: , 3:spade: (3 players)
      UTG2 checks, MP1 bets $0.24, Hero calls $0.24, UTG2 folds.

      Turn: ($0.81) J:heart: (2 players)
      MP1 checks, Hero ???

      Ok so my thought process is, even though MP1 is isolation raising, AK is too strong a hand to fold preflop,decide to flat call, see a flop IP.

      When he bets out on flop im thinking im still good most of the time, but dont want to overplay my TPTK, my question is on the turn, should i bet once he checkes to me as this may show weakness from him, or should i check for pot control so i dont overplay my TPTK?

      Hello keoghh,

      Preflop: Well, if he is some kind of maniac guy then I don't even mind if you 3bet here. :)

      As played
      Postflop: We have to bet the turn for protection from any kind of draw rather than Checking behind. Plus we secure us the free showdown with betting there.

      Best regards.
