      Hi GxTwo,

      Preflop: is there a particular reason for just calling here preflop rather than 3-bet for value?

      Postflop: As played I would actually bet the flop to try and isolate the fish for ourselves (BB).

      As played river bet/fold is fine, I doubt he ever raises a worse hand or bluff.

      No real reason, Vs unknown i usually flat BTN raises with AK

      plan on flop was to x/r. Why not just let him cbet first?

      If we were playing with 2 regs I agree but I think we have more value just taking initiative and trying to isolate the fish.

      I think that calling AK versus BTN is a mistake. You can raise it for value and expect to get called by a lot worse.
