      Hello,

      Preflop against this nitty guy I would be more inclined to flat the AK, but if you think that he isn't folding a lot I would 3bet around $0.55.

      Postflop I think we should play bet/bet/bet here once we decided to 3bet. I doubt villain folds top pair and I can't really see any flushes in his range.

      About the sizings - I don't really like them. Since this is a 3bet pot and the SPR is smaller we should go for smaller bets closer to 1/2 pot.

      Best,
      Plamen
