      Full Tilt Poker, $0.10/$0.25 NL Hold'em Cash Game, 6 Players - Hand History Converter

      Hero (SB): $30.35
      BB: $10.75
      UTG: $19
      MP: $22.40
      CO: $72.70
      BTN: $31.05

      Pre-Flop: A:diamond: K:diamond: dealt to Hero (SB)
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.85, BTN calls $0.85, Hero raises to $3.50, BB folds, CO raises to $10, BTN folds, Hero raises to $30.35 and is All-In, CO calls $20.35

      Flop: ($61.80) 9:diamond: J:diamond: 8:diamond: (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

      Turn: ($61.80) 6:heart: (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

      River: ($61.80) Q:diamond: (2 Players - 1 is All-In)

      Villain seems donkish, calling preflop 3 bets with ace rag. Haven't seem too much of him though.

      Also, this is probably not the place to post this, but I feel like playing AK preflop is one of my biggest weaknesses. Until now, I've always tended to 3bet AK and fold to 4bets, almost regardless of villain, but I know that that is much too weak. I think I'm lacking fundamental guidelines for playing AK preflop. Is the goal to see a flop or to shove? Do you shove for fold equity or for value? Obviously, it depends alot of reads, position, and villain's range, but is there a general goal when playing AK preflop?

      it realy depends on your table image . 6 handed is good to shove overall but is a high variance play . if you feel good postflop seeing a flop is better in some situations

      I would also shove.
      AKs is too good to 3-bet/fold and you can´t call 4-bet.
