      Preflop this is pretty easy with AK. We were 5 handed so I opened just for 3bbs.'s not a great flop ,'s paired and I still can represent a lot on it and I have 2 overcard and thats cool.His fold to cbet was 50%.

      Turn: Not a good card ,anything that I could I gave up the hand.

      River is not nice and I had to fold ...can't win this.

      On this 778ss board I will just check/fold. I would bet with the Ace or King of diamond, just for backdoor draws which I can barrel, and also to block off possible flush draw combinations that he could have.

      If board was 553ss, then I would cbet. I think the lower boards just connect with our opponent way less often. People defend middle suited connectors much more often than they defend stuff like 54s.
