      The problem is he has too small 3bet here. And I'm pretty sure he almost always calls AK pre (not shoves vs 4bet). So cbet and check-fold turn is pretty standart here I think. I can't even expect he to have TT in his preflop range.

      Hey Adsefghijk,

      4bet might be ok. It might actually be a better option just to flat and set-mine here. It really depends on any additional info you have on villain, and also MP2 to an extent.

      If I did 4bet I'd make it around $0.52. Cold 4bets look immensely strong at these stakes so it's a good idea to keep the sizing small if you hope to get action from worse.

      I don't really see any point cbetting this flop. I don't mind check-calling one-street though. Villain may bluff here and the K is paired making it less likely he has one.
