      Is call ok IP? He folds a lot to 3bet, and I wanted to keep his Ax in.
      Should I raise flop ? I am not sure if he calls with Ax raise bet bet.

      Preflop: I think if MP opens tight, and folds a lot to 3bets, flatting AK should be our preferred play.

      Postflop: As played everything else is fine. Our AK rates to be the best hand almost always and we should just bet Turn and River for value from AT and AQ.

      Don't raise - I never have a raising range on this flop. Raising here would purely be an exploitive play. It would require him to be paranoid and not put you on a value hand cos people just avoid raising value hands here in general. I guess it's possible to raise and barrel off if he is suspicious of you getting out of line with gutshots like 55 and 33.
