      WP pre-flop, you should 3bet w that OOP. Rock calls and there's K on the flop, which hits his range too well. STD cbet, sizing was ok for a 3-bet pot. You could have tried 2/3 cbet due to flush draw there (just to represent that you are protecting sth).

      WP turn too, he's not going to fold there anymore, I think.

      I´m not sure how many hands would he really raise/fold pre-flop and since you´re oop (also being deep) I would likely just fold pre-flop.

      Hand Equity Wins Ties
      AJ 35.62% 625,272,728 100,859,596
      7% 64.38% 1,171,100,508 100,859,596

      7% just crushes AJ and you´re not really happy playing postflop unless he folds to your c-bet or you flop JJx

      Postflop is more or less standard- you may consider c/f, but since you rep AK quite well and I think he would fold QQ-TT then c-bet should be fine

      best regards,
