      Hey ilidek,

      Standard line is to flat AK here, but 3betting for value is fine if villain is loose and has a low Ft3bet.

      You can probably bet a little smaller on such a dry flop. When you get min-raised there is a chance you are up vs a set. It is unlikely villain is bluffing but he may be a fish with a weak K. It's ok to peel one off but you should probably fold to large bets on turn and river.

      Turn you are getting priced in and have to call.

      Checking back river or betting very small is fine. I'd bet like 1/3rd pot to get value from Kx + any random garbage opponent has. Seems likely he is a fish by this stage.
