      Well played there, his bet on turn and checking 2 other streets looks like weak playing. So calling down here is ok.

      By betting the flop you might had made your opponent to raise you and make you fold the best hand, so checking back was ok.

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Bet the flop already when he Checks into you, you are very likely to have the best hand there and might even protect it. But otherwise what kind of hands do you think to have beat on the turn? :)

      Best Regards.

      I agree with Veriz why do you check the flop and call the turn? it s better bet the flop and check the turn.

      i checked behind the flop because he didn't cbet on a dry board, so I thought he was likely going to check/raise. Do you think he is check/folding AK there?

      Why not? He could do the same even with AQ/KQ or whatsoever. Why would you imagine he Check/raises you always here? :P Even if he continues then we are still ahead vs AK.
