      I thought his flop raise is bluff ,like gutshot .
      and I planned to go check raise all in on the turn and it worked
      was my play okey?

      Hi.

      I think your gameplan is fine. If the flop had a flush draw I would probably 3bet the Flop instead.

      I think even check/call Turn is fine, to allow villain to barrel through since the board is so dry. But if you raise the Turn that's fine as well.

      Thanks.

      yeah I think it is probably slightly better. His range is very polarized here, he either has some gutshot bluff or pure air, or he may have some two pairs or sets. I'm not sure if he raises KQ here for thin value, I think it's less likely on such a dry board.

      So taking the passive line makes more sense with AK (which IMO is probably a bluff catcher, since it's unlikely he raises worse hands for value). I'm not folding though, I think AK is too strong of a hand to fold.

      Thanks.
