      Hi imimba,

      Preflop: We are 200 BB deep with both of them but I think we can still 4-bet/fold AK here for value.

      I don't like calling here because we will be caught between two guys with a hand that just doesn't flop often enough. Plus I think we can get value with a 4-bet at least from BB

      Postflop: As played I agree with your flop bet to take initiative so CO doesn't check back.

      Turn is fine as well and you have to think about how you would react to a raise either on the flop or turn.

      Well, a flop call, turn raise would be really scary. I might even fold.
      A flop raise wouldnt be that scary.

      It depends where the raises come from and how big they are. Both opponents don't seem to be exceptionally aggro.

      But I do agree about the fact that a turn raise would be pretty bad and a flop raise would just get us thinking a bit but it could go either way.

      No hand flops "often enough" other than big pairs...

      But suited/connected hands flop more a lot more often than offsuite hands.
