      Hello DrDunne,

      Some time no see. :>

      Well, I doubt that I would play it much differently as I even went for a 3bet preflop. Most likely would have played the same way, the guy could easily even have draws/worse hands in his range there. But you could as well just ship the turn. :)

      Flat calling preflop ain't a very good idea while we are even in a multiway pot. AKo ain't gonna be very strong and also you invite people behind you to Call.

      Best Regards.
