      This was an interesting one because I was actually tempted to shove behind him, he has definitely been very aggro vs. me (ie; in one instance calls my 4-bet OOP and donk shoves the flop with middle pair (AQ) when I have KK) but obviously this isn't really a pretty board when you're holding AK.

      Hello,

      I like your preflop play here.

      Folding the flop looks good here.
      We don't have any information about what he donks with so basically anything but folding will lead to us having a lot of trouble on the later streets.

      Best,

      Thanks, he is a pretty LAG/spewy player so I think he could be doing that with any pair or even as a bluff but as you say I'm just putting myself into an increasingly tough situation by calling.

      Yep, and even if we hit A or K it might not be the best hand and we can't really call the turn with A high again.
