      Hi,

      after villain checks flop and turn, i'm pretty sure he's got AK too, so i decide to double barrel turn and river to make him fold. What do think about that? Should i try to bluff only if i have the A:heart: or K:heart: , because then it's very unlikely for him to have the flush? But maybe this is only result oriented thinking :(

      Hello HughJazz82,

      What does it mean "russian"? :D

      But about the play I tend to just Check behind on the turn, you ain't gonna make any better hand to fold anyways, not worth to try to kick out any AK type of hand and you can't put the opponent on only 1 hand. :)

      Best Regards.

      Well, if i'm playing against a russian w/ 15/12 stats i assume he's a pokerstrategy player and at least has some basic skill :)

      About the hand: If I assume a standard 3betting range and assume he cbets any pocket on the flop, AK is the only hand left. So i saw a great chance to steal half of the pot. Unluckily he trapped me ;(
