      What do you think about not going broke pre?
      CO vs BU I think I just get it in pre.

      Kinda hard to play AKo OOP though.

      I think donking river could be good.
      If he's 3betting Axs & I bet or shove river I'm not sure he could fold it.
      Also after I call turn my range is weighted heavily toward Ax so I don't think he would fire another bluff often.

      BTN: $50.50 (101 bb)
      SB: $50 (100 bb)
      BB: $39.92 (79.8 bb)
      UTG: $54.60 (109.2 bb)
      Hero (MP): $71.67 (143.3 bb)
      CO: $24.06 (48.1 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $1.50, CO folds, BTN raises to $4.75, 2 folds, Hero calls $3.25

      Flop: ($10.25) 4 2 A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $5.67, Hero calls $5.67

      Turn: ($21.59) A (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN bets $11.95, Hero calls $11.95

      River: ($45.49) K (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      $45.49 pot ($2.05 rake)
      Final Board: 4 2 A A K
      BTN mucked 6 8 and lost (-$22.37 net)
      Hero showed K A and won $43.44 ($21.07 net)

      Pre flop - I would prefer going broke here but calling and playing Oop with a strong hand is fine too.

      Flop and turn - we have the nuts but I don't think we are getting value if we bet and if he has an A I expect him to be betting anyway.

      River - I think Ax would still bet and maybe his bluffs so we can go for a check raise. I don't like Donking river because not much can call other THAN Ax and I would expect Ax to bet anyway.
