      Prima, $0.25/$0.50 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BB: $50 (100 bb)
      UTG: $131.60 (263.2 bb)
      MP: $57.80 (115.6 bb)
      CO: $40.88 (81.8 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $164.15 (328.3 bb)
      SB: $59.95 (119.9 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A K
      3 folds, Hero raises to $1, SB folds, BB raises to $4, Hero calls $3

      Flop: ($8.25) A Q 3 (2 players)
      BB bets $4, Hero calls $4

      Turn: ($16.25) 2 (2 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $8.50, BB calls $8.50

      River: ($33.25) 5 (2 players)
      BB bets $22.25, Hero folds

      - villain: 24/21 - 3bet 10% vs BTN - cbet in 3bet pot 38/33 - AGG 56/18/23
      - he has a high fold to 4bet (67%) so i think it's better to just call the 3bet IP
      - when he x/c turn and donk river i didn't know what to put him on (maybe 2pairs, rarely a set)
      1. It's better to call the 3bet IP because he give's up frequently when he miss and he has a better stack-off range (AK and QQ+) or it's better to just 4bet/call ?

      2. Flop and turn i think it's standard i bet for value there and if he check the river, i will bet also.

      3. When he x/c turn and donk river it's a fold right ? I can't put him on a hand that i beat.

      Preflop: I guess it's fine to flat here sometimes with suited AK vs someone with such a high fold to 4b. Just use a more bluff-heavy 4betting range.

      River: What does he rep? A4/A5? Honestly I can't think of too many bluffs.

      I'm still very reluctant to fold though. This hand is close to the top of our range. I think we can snap fold AJ and worse, while strongly considering calling here.

      Maybe he c/c Turn with KK/KQ and randomly turns it into a bluff on the River.

      Yep, i will 4bet bluff him a ton but AKs it's just to good in my opinion.

      He reps: AQ, A4, A3, A2, A5 and not many bluffs, as u said. It's a very strange line of him and most strange lines from a regular are for value. I don't think he has KK or KQ and turn it into a bluff ever, at these stakes.

      Thx again!
