      Stacks:
      UTG ($11.84) 118bb 22/19, AF: 8, CB: 100(4), 60h
      UTG+1 ($5.54) 55bb

      HERO (SB) ($10.47) 105bb
      BB ($9.01) 90bb

      Pre-Flop: ($0.15, 6 players) HERO is SB A:diamond: K:heart:
      UTG raises to $0.30, 3 folds, HERO calls $0.25, 1 fold

      Flop: 8:diamond: A:heart: Q:spade: ($0.70, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG bets $0.40, HERO calls $0.40

      Turn: 2:club: ($1.50, 2 players)
      HERO checks, UTG checks

      River: 4:spade: ($1.50, 2 players)
      HERO bets $0.90

      PRE
      Rather 3-bet? Not too much worse calls (TT/JJ/AQ) and top of his range probably 4-bets and I would not stack off vs UTG. Also, it would be much easier to play OOP with initiative.

      On the other hand, by flatting I can keep his range wider.

      FLOP
      I obviously have to call with TP, and he`s c-betting often anyways.
      Plan is to check turn and re-evaluate his actions.

      TURN
      After he checks, he doesn't have AK/AQ, so river becomes an easy value-bet.

      RIVER
      I think, I sized it too big. Sure AJ calls, but 99/TT/JJ folds. 0.7 - 0.8 would be better.

      Hello,

      Usually I would rather 3bet this preflop, than call it. The cons of calling here are that he seems cbet happy, so we can probably float him from times to times.

      Calling the flop here is fine. I don't think there is much value in raising since I really doubt that he is going to continue with worse here if we do this.

      On the turn we are probably going to check/call again?

      I would rather bet bigger on the river here. I doubt 99-JJ ever calls here, unless we make some ridiculously small bet, but we would love to maximize our value against Ax here, so I'd make it $1.2.
      The other option is to check/raise here.

      Best,
      Plamen

      Most likely, depending on timing/sizing.

      So, generally, we`re flatting AK vs EP, when the villain c-bets very often and gives up on the turn? So our line in that case would be X/R or, c/c and donk turn?

      If he likes to check back a lot I prefer check/calling the flop and donking the turn.
