      Hero (BTN): $6.24 - VPIP: 21, PFR: 16, 3B: 4, AF: 2,0, Hands: 59117
      SB: $6.44 - VPIP: 22, PFR: 16, 3B: 0, AF: 2,0, Hands: 45

      CO: $5.16 - VPIP: 30, PFR: 30, 3B: 0, AF: 1,0, Hands: 10

      Pre Flop: ($0.07) Hero is BTN with A :spade: K :spade:
      UTG raises to $0.15, 1 fold, Hero calls $0.15, 2 folds

      Flop: ($0.37) 9 :heart: T :spade: 9 :spade: (2 players)
      UTG bets $0.23, Hero raises to $0.76, UTG calls $0.53 His bet size is so small, doubt I have implied odds. I'm favorite o close to it, so I just exploit FE.

      Turn: ($1.89) 7 :club: (2 players)
      UTG checks, Hero ? Doubt he's going to fold anytinh he called flop, too bad.

      Just call. If he 3bets i dun think ur hand is strong enough to push on the flop.

      U also allow him to barrrel his weaker flushdraws and the scarecards which give u tptk

      I assume you have a good reason for flatting AKs IP? AKs is a great hand to play IP in a 3b pot. It's also not a bad hand to flat either. I'd lean towards a 3b for value though.

      Raise size is kinda small. He's probably got a scared Tx or a draw sometimes 77/88,JJ. I'd expect his to 3b stronger hands (or bet larger OTF). Occasionally he will play T9/TT this way.

      I don't mind flatting here, because we have to odds to call, and keep the pot smaller when we are drawing dead, or miss. We don't credibly rep much when we raise this board.

      Most villains don't CB this board with pure air, so I think flatting is slightly better. We also dominate a lot of draws and we keep things like AQ/AJ Kx in his range to make a sick value bet if we hit an A/K.

      Good spot for realizing equity, you're right hes not folding much here. I'd b/f a A/K OTT, don't expect him to c/r worse, and you get value from AT/JT/88/JJ/FD etc.

      Betting the turn/river is not *that* bad, expecting to barrel vilain off Tx/JJ and random draws. But i'd say it not as good as the passive line, and too high variance.

      As played, if we checked the turn. I'm taking a free showdown OTR unimproved. We beat a lot of busted draws already.

      I'd probably value bet/fold an A/K if checked to.

      If improved I'd value bet if checked to, and probably JUST CALL, if bet into.

      we're not repping much by raising flop
