      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.02/$0.04 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      SB (Hero):
      $5.61
      BB:
      $3.44
      MP2:

      MP3:
      $4.24
      CO:
      $15.37
      BU:

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A, K.
      2 folds, CO raises to $0.16, BU calls $0.16, Hero raises to $0.64, 2 folds, BU calls $0.48.

      Flop: ($1.48) 3, 5, 7 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BU checks.

      Turn: ($1.48) Q (2 players)
      Hero raises to $4.97, BU folds, Hero gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $1.48.

      I was going to check/shove the flop because I thought he could be having overcards.

      Hi DarkBlade282,

      I like your play.

      I might add 1 bb more to the squeezing size since you are a little deep against CO,

      You can expect BU to go barmy with any random hand in his range so I think the EV of a check on the flop is higher than that of a bet.

      Hello DarkBlade282,

      Assuming that BTN is rather bad player and we have tons of equity + fold equity on the flop then rather just ship it right there than let him catch something. :) He has a very loose range anyways so we could even be ahead with our AK.

      Best Regards.
