      Flop: Villain seems LAG so part of me wanted to just 3b the flop and get it in here vs weaker KX, but given the small sample I couldn't be sure and opted for a pot control line. I didn't think he would x/rai draws very often so I thought he mostly has KX, 55/33 or some crazy 2pr.

      I felt that folding TPTK IP too such an opp would be too weak and 3b'ing would be overplayed so called and decided to re-eval T.

      Turn: Total blank IMO. Either I'm still ahead or way behind to sets and 2pr. I think can either bet/fold T for free showdown or x/beh for bluff induce. I opted to x/beh because villains flop line was so strong and I didn't feel I had to protect against draws. My aim was to try to get to showdown cheaply or to maybe place a thin value bet on the river.

      River: Q is kind of disgusting because now I lose to KQ as well. I'm not sure whether calling R is correct, but since I call F and x/beh T and I only need about 27% to call I thought he might do this with worse hands sometimes. If he doesn't value bet KJ or worse here or bluff then calling R is bad I think.

      I think playing for stacks is the best option on the flop- you often see just tp hand and AK should be way ahead his c/r range.
      Ont he turn I would b/c and if he c/c then shove most rivers.

      If you check back turn, then you just give him free cards and likely would not induce that much river bluff.

      best regards,
