      Hello w4terman,

      Not really, I don't get your raise on the flop? What's the purpose of it? You don't let him continue with bluffs nor you don't let him continue with weaker hands. Then rather 4bet it preflop and get it in.

      Best Regards.

      If you think his 3betting is wide then sure why not but as I said I don't like your postflop play at all. You don't even allow him to continue with weaker hands nor bluffs which he could easily 2nd barrel.

      Veriz this is a hand that we played against each other. I had AK but my time run out so my hand was folded but tell me can I get away here? I mean I know that he has AA but looking from my TPTK can we get away?

      You can't really put the opponent on only 1 hand here anyways. Difficult to fold here as well without any stats nor great reads. If you think he is not flatting something like KQ and is rather passive then it might be the case cause we don't beat that many hands there and could as well be against a trap KK/AA.
