      I had an idea of his range I think he had a King in his hand(AK), which hit the river was that a good laydown?

      make it something like 55 cents preflop, you are 3betting from the blinds vs an utg raise and your range in that spot should be super strong.
      also by 3betting a bit bigger you give him bad odds to setmine.

      other than that the hand is played fine.
      good check/fold on the river, unfortunately that's the worst card on the deck for us because it improves pretty much all the worse hands that he could be calling down with. (kings and flushdraws)
