      UTG checks, Hero bets $6.00, UTG raises to $16, Hero folds


      Against this Villain I think it's reasonable to 3bet/fold AKo in position even deepstack. If he 4bets, I'm probably way behind, and easy fold, but based on his stats so far he could call with a lot worse.
      Flop standard.
      Would you bet/fold turn, or checkbehind for potcontrol being deepstack. I thought as I dont have the A, so dont have redraw, it's better to bet/fold turn for free showdown.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Preflop: While being a bit deeper I'd 3bet it also a bit bigger.

      As played
      Postflop: Bet/Folding the turn should be still fine if we want to avoid facing a huge Bet on the river and we could easily also protect our hand. Although I would still do a bit bigger to give him tougher time to Check/Raise vs us ~$7-8. He might even be bluffing here in taht case cause he ain't representing much.

      Best Regards.
