      villain is a 33/30 3B:18 AF: 4.5 LAG,

      almost puked when i saw that flop

      should have probably bet the flop, c behind turn and fold river i guess

      as played the only reason why i call is i thought he might have some overplayed AK sometimes, but now that i think about it, i dont think even he would barrel twice with that

      I like your check, I think it's an advanced play that many low stakes players do not make. They usually just bet blindly cos they "have the nuts." Give yourself a pat on the back :)

      Go with your initial reaction. You almost puked when you saw that flop. Basically AA's relative hand strength fell drastically on this Flop texture. Instead of going for 3 streets of value and playing for stacks on most boards, our hand now becomes severely weakened by this Flop. I think our hand can only go for 2 streets of value at the very most. We lose to so many sets and two pairs and straights and if we bet and get raised I would puke even more.

      I'm not sure why you disliked your flop check though, you lost the minimum IMO. If you had bet and gotten raised, had you stacked off, you would have lost way more. You could have easily induced some random bluff, he could value bet AK himself if he didn't 3bet it. He could turn TT or 99 or 88 into a bluff as well.

      Very well played!
