      The actions an the flop and turn I think are pretty standard, but on the river after he shoves I don't see many hands I can beat, when he takes this line. Is a fold corrct?
      Also what do you think about calling a 3bet preflop with AK oop?

      first of all, to call a 3bet pre is ok, but i hope u dont play it always like this ;)
      and the fold on the river is also comprehensible. I see AQ, or maybe QQ in his range...

      Would also fold river. Don't think he is checking flop behind with air and then bluffraise river. On flop I think he has pocket pair mostly, don't believe he turns that into bluff on the river. Looks like QQ alot.

      Preflop, I always 4bet AK oop (also ip). I find it hard to play oop after calling 3bet.

      He would not turn his showdown value hands into bluffs and it looks like QQ so I would also b/f river.

      You can also 4-bet AK pf, but calling should be also fine. You keep in his worse Ax and Kx hands and can c/r for value on Axx and Kxx boards.

      Best regards,
