      PF pot bet.

      The very tiny amount left in his stack made me not give up my overcards + gutshot and possibly even ahead with my A?
      Is that wrong?
      I know it's marginal, but wrong?

      Flop seems marginal already. If you are ahead or have enough equity with AK on QT55, why shove IP? What do you make him fold? Do you think he folds 88 now but doesnt fold on the river? My personal experience is that he is trying to induce a bet usually with hands like 5x, Tx, some KQ, QJ, Q9, AQ type hands very often, but overall is simply never folding.

      If he is never folding, why raise? Since flop call was already quite close imo, turn is actually a fold. He is less likely to bet as a bluff and you have next to no FE while clearly behind. You could consider shoving flop if he bet/folds often since your cbet is probably commiting anyway.
