      BB checks, Hero bets $16, BB raises to $38.55 and is all-in, Hero ???????

      Villain is very loose and very passive fish. 44/24/4.5 AF=0.8 WTSD=44 W$SD=32.
      When he calls twice I put him mostly on QQ, then he pops me on the river. I was completely WTF?

      Hey Circoflax,

      Very interesting hand. I love the fact that pre flop you just call with AK, I think 4betting is an option, but vs the BB who will likely just call with marginal hands as he already feels like half of his hand is over the line I think calling is best.

      I don't expect him to fold the flop and I don't expect him to fold for 4.50 if he calls 3.50, this means that we get an immediate 2bb extra value and it allows us to increase the pot size on the turn for more value.

      Similarly on the turn I think we can go abit bigger, even if you start going 8 instead of 7 you are making an extra 2bb/100 and really improving your win rate!

      River is completely wtf :) Whilst folding and not telling anybody is never going to be terrible there is always the "spaz" factor and calling is probably going to be a little bit better with the insanely good price we have.
