      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $102.53 (410.1 bb) 42/17 (24h)
      Hero (SB): $31.61 (126.4 bb)
      BB: $47.93 (191.7 bb)
      UTG: $35.83 (143.3 bb)
      MP: $34.45 (137.8 bb) 31/27 (119h)
      CO: $26.72 (106.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with A K
      UTG folds, MP raises to $0.75, CO folds, BTN calls $0.75, Hero raises to $3.20, 2 folds, BTN calls $2.45

      Flop: ($7.40) 6 5 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.20, BTN calls $3.20

      Turn: ($13.80) 8 (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $6.60, Hero folds

      Preflop: is a squeeze with AK pretty much compulsory here? Against a 31/27 and a 42/17 I was just thinking "here we go, there's no way they're both going to fold, then I'm probably going to miss the flop OOP and burn money..." Plus we're a bit deep. But calling is horrible so I think I have to raise.

      Flop: should I even bother cbetting against this guy? No better hand is going to fold, but maybe I can get rid of his overcards and random stuff before he draws out on me. Can't really check/guess for 3 streets.

      Preflop is fine, don't doubt squeezing AK against 2 non-super nits. You get value when they call and you hit or attack a good texture. However, this is not a good texture so your cbet here will be bad. I think he folds nothing, and you also have no equity. Check/fold and wait for a better board for your hand and bluffing possibility. This one simply hits too much of your opponent's range.
