      few hands ago he lost vs me with AK vs AA

      is it ok to make such small bets to make it look like a bluff In case he decided to call with AK ? because its easy to get it in on later streets when not much is left if he has overpair.


      Maybe even cbh flop and let him donkbet bluff turn? If he does not then bet myself.

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think that both checking back and betting small have their merits.

      If we bet the flop I'd check back turn to make it look like we are giving up. I think that two small bets in a row look a lot more like a valuebet.
