      fold, MP raises to $0.60, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.50, BB calls $0.40

      Flop: ($1.80, 3 players) 8:diamond: J:spade: 4:spade:
      Hero checks, BB checks, MP bets $1.40, Hero calls $1.40, fold

      Turn: ($4.60, 2 players) 6:diamond:
      Hero checks, MP bets $4.00, Hero raises to $18.41 and is all-in, fold

      On the flop I call because i want the BB to call as well. Against such an aggressive opponent on the flop I decide to push.

      PF: 3bet this hand, he probably opens wide enough. Assuming you 3bet bluff some % of the time here, you have a profitable 3bet with AKs and can stack off comfortably. I really hate calling in SB so I will avoid it as much as possible. This guy doesn't open with some nitty range so I 3bet him with AKs, as well as some bluffs for balance.

      Flop: Standard call.

      Turn: I don't know. I think it's a good play if you can fold out overpairs and JX. It's not if he calls you with all those.

      I don't think he is as aggressive as you make him out to be. The Flop isn't even that great for cbet bluffing, it's not Ace or King high, there's a flush draw, and the board is somewhat connected, with any connectors between 4 and J flopping some sort of gutshot or OESD.
