      the preflop raise is a little stinky, and the flop is almost too good to be true. what he calls me down with on turn is unreal.

      What needs evaluating? :D

      Not folding AK to a 3bet in position 5 handed pre flop.

      An arguement can be made for calling down, not that much need to raise the turn because once he bets the turn he's likely to bet the river regardless but may fold to a raise. Even if he checks the river you've got position and stacks are set up perfectly to just shove yourself. Board is very dry though so I prefer to just call turn in position and let him hang himself.

      Not a huge fan in general of min-raises, but meh. nh

      Hello ilovemagic,

      No need to raise the turn, you are just scaring away weaker hands. Rather let him continue with bluffs, you can ship the river anyways. ;)

      Best Regards.
