      13 hands on him, VP 26

      Is bet on turn ok and size? If I check I lose value against draws and Kx, and weaker Ax.

      Unless you have a read, he doesn't have any weaker Ax in his range. BB is unlikely to call less than A8 there, he will usually have better Ax.

      I usually opt to check one street here for that reason. The flushdraw is not a big issue either because the suited hands that call are either combo draws that often c/r and make us fold or just standard flushdraws that don't hit often with on free card. You can also induce some bluffs.. AKx is such a lockdown vs a UTG range I don't think A8s cbet will be profitable in the long run unless peopel start bluffcatching stuff like TT vs you.
