      Hero shows K:heart: A:spade: (One Pair, Kings) (Pre 45%, Flop 27%, Turn 95%)
      MP mucks 9:heart: 9:club: (One Pair, Nines) (Pre 55%, Flop 73%, Turn 5%)
      Hero wins 88.2 BB

      Villian has 121 hands. VP 35, PFR 24. 3bet 3%, 4bet 0. In 3bet pots calls 2/3 times cbet, folds 1/3. Turn no info. Fold to 3bet 42%

      I 3bet because he calls with wide range. But also calls 2/3 cbet, so should i cbet flop?
      It is always dificullt for me AK in 3bet pots.

      I call flop because he can bet many Ax which I beat.

      If I wouldnt hit I would fold to another bet.
      Should I donk turn? He could also have flush draw, or 99-QQ which calls but checks behind.

      bet larger?

      Hi Mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: On the flop, if we cbet we should bet a couple of streets however considering the board and our hand I don't mind even ck/folding.

      Versus calling stations like him you make money by valuebetting not by semibluffing with weaker hands (or bluffcatching super light).

      As played I'd donk that turn to avoid him checking back (if he is somewhat passive on later streets).
