      Hi.

      If you don't want to bluff catch AK, you might as well cbet the Flop. Unless you are 100% sure that he has a pocket pair here. Then again you are probably just better off jamming Preflop if you want to play so weakly postflop.

      The point of making a smaller 4bet here is to allow him to come along with worse hands like AQ KQ AJ KJ AT. I think making it 7 or 8 is fine. Then on this particular dry paired flop, I just check and try to showdown, be prepared to call 1 or 2 streets and bluff catch with Ace high.

      If I cbet this board the line would be cbet/call right?
      And if I 4bet smaller the idea would be to keep his weaker broadways in his range and then to hope that he'll bluff off his stack with them while I am planning to call them down and while they are the bigger part of his range?
      p.s just want to make sure I got the analysis right

      Cbet small and fold unless u think he jams non pairs. Then that would be betting small to induce a bluffraise. If u think he floats oop with overcards then u can just bluffcatch river instead.

      Checking is turning ur hand into a bluff catcher so for the river bet just decide if he bluff 2barrels enough of the time and call or fold accordingly.
