      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:heart: , K:diamond:
      2 folds, MP1 raises to $0.10, 4 folds, Hero raises to $0.30, BB folds, MP1 calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) A:spade: , 8:heart: , 6:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0.46, MP1 raises to $1.63 (All-In), Hero calls $1.17.

      Turn: ($3.91) 2:club:
      River: ($3.91) 9:diamond: (2 players)


      Final Pot: $3.91

      Seriously, was I supposed to be bet/folding this on the flop as chart suggested? I deviated because I really don't see what MP1 could have that has me beat most of the times? AA? Possibly, but only a fraction of time I would guess. A8/A6/68? :)

      Hey,

      I would 3bet bigger preflop as 3xing a minraise is not maximizing your value with AK. so I go to like $0.35 or even $0.40

      The flop he shoves but since u are in a 3bet pot situation, you need to put something like ''88,66,AQ-A8,A6s'' in Equilab which you can download at PokerStrategy Poker Tools section http://www.pokerstrategy.com/software/

      You probably see you are far ahead so folding here is out of the question
