[NL2-NL10] AK BB against steal

      Please find the following hand for analysis:
      A raise from the button and I 3bet and flat the 4bet to start with. Then some weird bets on the flop and turn and a check for both on the flop.

      What I know about the villains:
      32%/28% from the button and 61% attempt to steal from the button.
      Have evidence that he once attempted to steal and 4bets with A9o.

      My thoughts:
      I still believe that given his stats and the evidence I have that the 4bet flat pre-flop is kind of ok. the 2 cents on the flop smells like a kind of min bet/raise kind of action. On the turn I improve to a nut flush draw and decided to call his turn bet.

      - should I have let go pre-flop?
      - should I raise his flop bet? (Guess not for pot control reasons)
      - Is the nut flush draw worth a call given the fact that the board is paired and I have only +/-16% to complete the Flush.

      Just push ak here. This guy is loose and this is a late position situation. Ranges are much wider here and ak is relatively stronger, strong enough to play for stacks here.

      4b size is kind of large so i dont like flatting too much. Postflop playability with AKo isnt exactly too good.
