      3 hands.

      I raise, because he often can have AK, AA, and I can stack him.
      On river I was not much afraid of draws completing, because I was very sure he has AA, but I would never put him on AT

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: This deep, with SB I don't mind the call although BTN will get decent odds and come along often.

      Postflop: Why does he have AA only on the river? The way he played it he can have AK/AA some FDs (AQcc and others he bluffed with).

      So river may be thin if villain can't call with AK which may be asking a bit much (what would you do with AK there on the river based on the line taken?).

      With AK I wouldn't fold flop and turn for sure, I would play check call. River also questionable. People bluff raise very often in sqeeze flops, so I wouldnt fold AK.
      In NL25, almost always when I 3bet, I get mini raise on flop.

      So how would you play river? check behind, or bet? I think he has more often AA, AK here than AT, or flush?

      Is my raise on flop ok?

      I'd prefer a larger raise on the flop since we can definitely get more out of AA/AK and some AQ.

      As played I'd bet river as well but probably around 60-70 BBs to increase the chance we get called by AK.
