      I didnnt know what range he could have, but he paid with AK me check raise on flop, i was sure i am ahead on flop. Thought he is bluffing, but showed AK with 3 outs. Then i am tilted etc. etc :(

      first of all I would raise bigger flop like 4x. But it does not change anything. in this situation

      second.. I wouolld bet the flop. But as you played check-raise I would raise bigger. After his call... you can only expect to call him with diamonds if you want to be ahead or lower pockets than QQ.

      On the turn all you baet is air or lower pp.
      sorry.. change my mind a little.. you can beat any Qx. :) but still.. I think river is a fold.

      I think I would also raise/call pf. Postflop I like your c/r line to induce bet from air- although K is not the best hand I would also not c/f my hand- he can still have there draws or worse pp-s that he is shoving as bluff

      best regards,
