      Got stuck in the AKo hand and decide to flat call a min bet from a Limp/caller. Would it have been better to raise the flop immediately? I have only 12 hands on the villain (50/0) 40% limp.

      Hello,

      In these spots, I do advice people to just fold the flop. We just have two overcards and there are still two streets left to play, and even if we hit A or K it is not necessarily the best hand and we are likely to get into trouble spots on the later streets, also we have a player behind us left to act.

      As played on the flop, raising the turn for value and betting the river is good.

      Best,
      Plamen
