      In alot of spots I find myself with AK in a 3bet pot. However, I' m not sure how to respond. Most of the time i cbet, but when someone plays back, we're playing for stacks. Probably because it was 3betted pf the nature of their hand is better than when i normally cbet, and villains plays back a lot. With this board, villains nows it didn't help me, and i think i get exploited in this spots quite often. How to respond?

      How does villain know that you dont´have here overpair.
      Board is very dry and he can represent overpair or flushdraw.
      If you notice players re-raising a lot of low boards then just go c/f or c/rai.
      Also if you bet 6$ on that board you have bigger fold equity.
