      Hi Zumpar,

      Preflop: Since we know that villain 3-bets a lot and fold a lot to 4-bet we also know that:

      A) We should 4-bet a lot versus him, especially with blockers (like our hand)
      B) When he does 5-bet or call our 4-bet we simply shut down.

      Flop: So when we see this flop, after being called I would actually not mind taking the free card and playing the turn or, as you did, bet really small to induce (mostly a light call from a hand like AcK/AcQ).

      However, considering how tight you think he is I wouldn't expect him to ck/raise AKo much. At best I can see him calling it.

      A more realistic range, for ck/raising, would be TT+ (and yes I can see him slowplaying KK/AA some of the time) and AQcc (but he may even fold that preflop). So even against this range we still have 47% equity.

      Taking the free card it's not bad either because we can then call/shove any turn and if a Kx comes down we will stack his AK hands that would otherwise fold.
