      PF: I 3-bet for value BvB

      Flop: I bet for value vs worse Kings and some flushdraws. When he min-raised, my A :diamond: blocks his Flush combos. I feel his range is still pretty wide here so I decided to call IP and try and get to showdown as cheap as possible. W his stack, I know I have to decide to get it in on the Turn.

      Turn: The 7 is not a good card as 7x also beats me now. I was contemplating to call as I don't think he reps much here. Don't think he will call a 3-bet OOP w 7x. Don't think he will play a diamond draw w/o A :diamond: this way as well.

      I think he has a lot of Kx in his range, and AK makes perfect sense to play like this. But I'm really not sure ?(

      Hi cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine but again I'd make it larger for pure value

      Postflop: Why are we folding TPTK in a 3-bet pot versus a fishy short/mind stacker guy?

      Your flop call is fine but should be followed by a call on the turn. I can see him playing like this with any Kx.

      If you don't want to call just shove the flop.
