      On flop I have raised and called his 3bet because he is very very loose - VPIP/PFR/3bet 71/51/36, so his range is very wide.

      I have missed flop but on turn I have bet 3/4 pot on top pair with A kicker and he called.

      On turn check/call - pot control because of flush, although he is probably holding something like Kx.

      Would it be better to bet/fold or bet/call on river or is my line good in this situation against such loose opponent?

      Pre-flop against such a player I am happy to keep min-raising his bets and hope he makes the mistake of playing the game rather than just calling - If he shoves I am happy to go broke here as more often than not I am ahead. And if not I very slim dog... He rarely shows up with AA, KK which is all we're really caring about with AK.

      Against such a weak opponent I like the check on the flop, I'd probably do the same, once the K hits the turn though I like the bet, then on the river I am definitely playing bet/call unless he jams. The times he shows up with A,4, A,5 A,6 A,7 and I think sometimes even A,Q A,J.. + Any :spade: .

      I think times he has us beaten here are very minimal and sometimes depending on what he had showed down previously I may even call a shove on the river.

      Hello toteatoo,

      Preflop: If he is 3betting a lot and is very aggressive on the tables then you can also consider even 4betting and going broke here. But of course flatting isn't wrong.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd definitely Bet the river myself there as well while there are going to be still hands which we get value. :)

      Best Regards.
