      any other way to play this? :D
      i'm not into 3betting preflop because i'm a nit and vs unknown i don't want to turn AK into a bluff, would rather do it with AQ (does this make any sense? :P )
      and c/c river should suck, because i think he checks behind his entire range that gets to the river there... even if i don't really expect him to snapgive me the money :D

      I would rather 3-bet pre vs an unknown open from MP+1, it's generally ahead of his range.

      Sorry no, doing with AQ and not AK doesn't make sense...at least against an unknown. You could maybe justify it against someone who folds a lot to 3-bets, so you 3-bet your junk and call with your best hands to extract more value...but then I'd rather call with AQ as well.

      In any event being OOP I like 3-betting good hands when we think we're ahead of their range because I don't mind taking down their bet and it's easier to play a bigger pot.

      I don't think calling is a big mistake though. I usually call with AK against UTG bets from reg types for example, that could be overnitting on my part maybe.

      Hand looks good, shame he didn't call with K-high flush :(

      exactly! "someone who folds a lot to 3bets" is typical FR2 zoom unknown weaktight player.

      actually i hate to 3bet these hands OOP, i rather 3bet hands like suited connectors which play pretty easily.
      from blinds i think i most often call AK-AJ and 3bet lower aces as a bluff (mostly for blocker value), also they usually play so face up when calling 3bets that i don't run into that many problems :P
      AK-AJ still play pretty well for 3bets in position though.

      i wonder how profitable it can be played that way and i wonder if it makes a lot of sense :D "been working for me"...

      Hello Tomaloc,

      Preflop: Calling is totally fine here and keeping his range even wide. If we 3bet then we have to turn our hand into bluff. :)

      As played
      Postflop: Like your play here and most likely I'd play the same way. We might even able to count all the overcards as outs and of course nutFD.

      Best Regards.
