      villian is 32/22 after 37 hands.
      I am wondering how to play these spots with my AK. I think that his range consists of 99-QQ plus some broadways and aces type hands. On NL10 when i cbet here they never fold.
      Is it better to just flat AK oop and keep their range weak? And start 3beting more looser players with plan to stak off before the flop?

      I think 3-betting loose player with AK shows you a lot of profit, since he would very often call with worse Ax hands (like AQ/AJ) and likely he would also call with broadway hands. You´re going to hit flop 1/3 of times and can then play for stacks most of the times or take yourself bet/bet/shove line.

      Even if you miss c-bet should profitable take pot down. You can cosnider c/f boards where you have little equity or when player is likely going to call or raise (small coordinated boards)

      T72r is one of the best boards for you, since it miss most of the boardway hands and even if he has there pp he would very likely fold to your turn barrel+ you can always count on scare cards and barrel on J and Q turns that gives you also extra equity.

      If you are going to c/f, then he would take stab some point with his weaker hands (maybe check back AQ) and you can never know if he is bluffing or valuebetting.

      best regards,
