      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.02(BB) Replayer
      SB ($2.01)
      BB ($2)
      UTG ($4.32)
      UTG+1 ($2)
      UTG+2 ($3.26)
      Hero ($2)
      CO ($1.20)
      BTN ($1.07)

      Dealt to Hero A:club: K:spade:

      fold, UTG+1 calls $0.02, fold, Hero raises to $0.10, fold, BTN calls $0.10, SB calls $0.09, fold, UTG+1 calls $0.08

      FLOP ($0.42) A:diamond: 3:club: 2:club:

      SB checks, UTG+1 bets $0.40, Hero folds, BTN folds, SB folds

      UTG+1 wins $0.40

      Villain stats are 9/7 AF 2.7 - he is playing 10+ tables usually so I take him as a nitty guy who doesnt play a hand big unless he hit it strong

      even though I hit the flop nice, he leads for a pot here with 4 people and I dont think he would be doing that with Ax hands, AK would probably 3bet me on the preflop if not he would just check/call here as with any stronger ace...so I think he is probably either on a set or a straight and just wants to get value in

      Hi

      Call Flop and see what happens next. He doesn't necessarily have a set here

      Thanks.

      in case the turn card is blank and he checks,

      is my plan here to check back and try to get to showdown with a plan to check the river too, or should I bet/fold in that situation and check the river if he calls the turn and checks river back


      thanks

      Hi.

      While I usually do not advocate pot controlling AK esp when opponent checks since a check/raise occurs so rarely, I would like to point out some things

      1) Limp/calling ranges from tight nits at lower stakes (note the close VPIP/PFR) tends to be pocketpairs in EP most of the time.
      2) I'd expect him to raise AQ and AK preflop.

      Therefore I think a check on the Turn is good.

      Thanks.
