      Final Board: A 8 T Q 6
      Hero mucked K A and won $8.36 ($4.11 net)
      BTN showed T K and lost (-$4.25 net)


      Didn't want to overplay my AK vs somewhat tight opponent.

      When he c flop I bet small to get value from weaker Ax (although he doesn't 3b with AJ?).

      On R I just go for c/c line because I don't see many hands that I can get value from.

      Hi.

      Pre - Turn is fine. River is definitely a mistake. So much value from some light 3bets from AX (A5s for example), and you beat KK/JJ too. I think you have the best hand here almost always besides losing to QQ and thus this is a really easy bet on the River.

      Thanks.
