      Hello Tomaloc,

      You could still have called and played postflop the hand. :) That's exactly what I was talking about, auto-pilot, robot play. :D Lets fold and wait for AA/PPs. :f_biggrin:

      Best Regards.

      but what's my postflop plan? autopilot would be to call, i mean who folds AK preflop :D but then i couldn't find a reason ?(
      i'm still playing 17/14 which is quite loose imo :P

      i don't know anything about how he plays post and AK is nearly bottom of his range probably... i could call IP, but didn't want to OOP
      and when i only hit 30% and don't know anything about whether he can even fold postflop i didn't see how i could play it profitable...

      Do you think I am able to answer you this kind of question with just one sentence without seeing the board, nor any action nor knowing the opponent? :f_biggrin:

      but the real problem is that we don't know anything at all about how he plays postflop...
      massive nit who has only opened 2 hands so far and got folds :f_mad:

      what is our default line on Kxxr? c/c 3 streets, bet/fold turn and river vs missed cb? try a c/r on T98? i mean we don't have even one postflop hand on him :f_cry:
      i still would play this IP all the time, but OOP is eww

      I would assume he also plays nitty postflop and maybe even if doesn't hit just gives up. :D

      I would most likely Check/Call and reevaluate further actions/streets/bet sizes, hard to say. If you once get some hands then just try to post them. :)

      And yes, even Check/Raising is possible, especially if you have some draws yourself or backdoors.
