      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has K:diamond: A:spade:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, fold, SB raises to 9 BB, fold, Hero calls 6 BB

      SB checks, Hero bets 20.5 BB, fold

      Hero shows K:diamond: A:spade: (High Card, Ace)
      Hero wins 38.95 BB

      850 hands, 16/11 3bet 8 against CO 8. cbet 50% flop, turn 40

      Saw him 3betting JJ, ATs, AQo, A6s, 99, AA

      I call preflop, because he seems to like 3betting Ax hands which I dominate
      and I am IP.

      On turn, it looks he is giving up his overcards, so I bet. But, do I need to bet, If I dominate all his overcards, and he probably calls TT,JJ and similar? What if I check turn, and he bets river, should I call it?

      I would not mind checking back on a blankish Turn like the 9/T/2/6/4. I think AK high has a good amt of showdown value on those pairing runouts especially.

      On a coordinating card like the 5/7, I prefer just betting the Turn and bluffing all rivers. You can consider overbetting River to rep a really strong hand. We can rep straights like 78 or 3X here so I think we can scare him a lot.
