      Hi,


      You said that it is better to raise if we think he will bet on the next street in case we call.

      but a bet raise looks so strong and a bet call, looks very weak in comparison, I think if I called this flop he would have bet the turn

      What would the best value line be in thsi sutuation?

      Hey BotiaKiraly,

      3betting AKo vs EP open will not be the best option here. Standard play should be to flat preflop without a very good reason.

      Since flop texture is pretty dry I prefer calling vs raise and letting villain bet the turn. You maximise your expectation vs bluffs this way.
