      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (UTG): $25 (100 bb)
      MP: $63.03 (252.1 bb)
      CO: $43 (172 bb)
      BTN: $20.35 (81.4 bb)
      SB: $20.61 (82.4 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is UTG with A:diamond: K:heart:
      Hero raises to $0.75, MP folds, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) Q:diamond: Q:spade: 4:heart: (2 players)
      Hero bets $1, CO raises to $2, Hero calls $1

      Turn: ($5.85) 2:heart: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3, Hero calls $3

      River: ($11.85) A:club: (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks

      those guys are sick. They don't rep anything. 69/25 raise cb 17% F 15% T fold to cbet 45% F 47% turn 25 WTS 48 W$SD WWF 49% 1.1k hands

      with AK my gameplan is to play x/c x/c x/f on any board except aces. I don't see any point in donking R, if he was bluffing he can fire again (he mostly bluffs) if he has something like PP he can fire again.

      If I would have hand like KJ or something I prefere to 3b up to 5 and second barrel, what do you think about it? AK is to strong to change it into bluff

      I think if his range is just so wide, I would just c/c twice by default. I don't like betting flop and then calling the raise. We need to know that he is capable of bluff raising a lot.

      And if he is capable of raising a lot, then I'm sure the EV of c/c is even higher since he would probably bet a lot when checked to and we don't want to bloat up the pot so much. Basically checking keeps his bluffing range much wider than betting.

      So by default i c/c F and T, and decide on R.
