      Hi.

      Preflop: seems fine given his looseness and unwillingness to fold

      Flop: Seems like he likes raising flop for thin value. I still prefer betting flop though (prefer the passive play with a diamond in your hand to block all the flush combos he could have or try to rep).

      I think this play is purely exploitative and you are going to play vs this guy a lot since he is a reg. Don't think you should be checking AK here by default - He can definitely adjust to you.

      How would you adjust in villain shoes?

      And would you go for bet bet bet in this case vs this villain? Would you consider bet flop, c/c turn? What turns?

      On this particular Turn i will probably c/c AK. The Turn card really improves a good number of hands from his range, such as QJ or flushes. Let him bluff with his AQ and AJ floats.

      About adjusting: if you are checking strong hands on the flop always, it just weakens your flop betting range. That means that he can start bluff raising or floating you wider on the Flop when you bet.
