      I have decided to run a filter with AK OOP, so there might be a good chunk of hand evals coming :D
      PokerStars - $0.10 NL - Holdem - 8 players
      Hand converted by PokerTracker 4

      MP+1: $3.95
      CO: $4.00
      BTN: $10.00
      Hero (SB): $10.00
      BB: $10.00
      UTG: $10.31
      UTG+1: $3.78
      MP: $28.68 14/11 over 310 hands, cbet 63%. A decent reg.

      Hero posts SB $0.05, BB posts BB $0.10, CO posts DB $0.10

      Pre Flop: (pot: $0.25) Hero has A:heart: K:heart:

      fold, fold, MP raises to $0.40, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.35, fold

      Flop: ($1.00, 2 players) 9:heart: 2:heart: 8:club:

      My question is pretty broad: How do I play this hand? I am after a flush. Do I go check/call, check/call, check/raise if I hit on river, for example? Or a different line?

      What if I hit on turn?

      Thanks a lot :heart:

      I would prefer 3-betting pre-flop to take advantage. Postflop I think best option is to c/r flop to fold out his marginal hands and then play for stacks, since you are ahead most of his pocketpairs (beside KK/AA) and by c/r you get an extra bet against hands that would ahve fold if you bet out yourself.

      If you take c/c line then very likely you are after flush, so players would not bluff that often when flushcard comes, so you should take more aggressive approach earlier streets.

      best regards,
