      Villain is unknown.

      Did I play this had correctly?

      Preflop I am happy to call his 3bet since I don't really like shoving with AK and i'm in position.

      On the flop I hit nothing but an inside straight draw. The villain checks, which is wierd, but I only have 2 overcards so I don't think I can bluff him off the pot.

      The turn gives me top pair which is nice but any J still beats me and KQ hit the straight so i c/c for potcontrol.

      The river gives me top two-pair but now I lose against any J and any Q so i fold.

      Good/Bad?

      Hello Jehryn,

      Doubt that you can do much postflop cause his play-style indicates to rather a strong hand, maybe even a trap. We don't have any fold equity on the flop vs made hands anyways and vs any other hands we are ahead.

      We could argue about preflop play but overall if you assume that he is capable of 3betting light then calling is possible.

      Best Regards.
