      Preflop: Hero is SB with K A
      4 folds, CO raises to $1.25, BTN folds, Hero raises to $4.25, BB folds, CO calls $3

      Flop: ($9) 5 6 5 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3.50, Hero folds

      $9 pot ($0.40 rake)
      Final Board: 5 6 5
      CO mucked and won $8.60 ($4.35 net)
      Hero mucked K A and lost (-$4.25 net)

      villain is probably reg, he plays 4 tables and it was his 5 hand. Before he did 3bet once.
      I know I have to have bluffing range here, cause I wont get paid if have overpairs here.
      Even if balance is not the case, AK is still good against his range.
      But he wont fold 77+ here, he'll also probably float with worse broadways, so one bet is bad. Maybe I should bet bet bet with most equity hands like AK, AQ, and Ax with backdor FD or SD? and give up with rest like KQ, 9T etc.?

      On dry Flops you can think about firing thrice with AK to balance your overpairs. Assuming your opponent is getting around 30% pot odds on the River (facing a 65-100% pot size bet), you need to have 30% bluffs and 70% value hands in order to be balanced on the RIver (and prevent villain from exploiting you by either calling more or folding more)

      AK (16 combos)
      TT+ (30 combos)
