      Preflop raising is fine.

      What's the reasoning for betting the flop so big? Would you bet AK this way for example?
      I prefer betting around $0.6-$0.7 here.

      Why do we check on the turn? There are still worse hands to take value from so I'd bet $1.7 here.

      On the river calling is fine.

      Thanks for calling my atention to the bet size... I just bought a multi-tabling software and set 75% as default (don't ask me why :P )

      What worse hands would call the flop to value bet the turn with? o.o

      Extremely important question: 2/3 (66,6%) is standard for value betting any street or should I value bet like: 66,6% on flop, 60% on turn and 55% on river?
