      For me is AK hard to play when they don`t hit anything. Shoud I just give up on them in such board or is good to c-bet here? Maybe larger c-bet?

      I think it is fine to give up here. Betting the turn means you basically have to fire again on the river if calls and checks. Board texture doenst improve your range much so you're repping quite a narrow range if you decide to continue.

      Hello mylove190207,

      Well, usually if he is a good player then his calling range will be also rather stronger. Although while he seems to be rather looser player then your play is totally fine as well. We gonna gain with CBetting a free card for river.

      Best Regards.
