      villain playing 22/17/4.4 AF over 112 hands
      co open 17% (18), fold to 3bet 2/2

      pre flop i could certainly lean towards a 3bet, and would do this 100%, but open sizing and particular villain made me timid.

      as played, seems pretty standard i would think. river is most likely a fold?
      not sure if there will be many regs at NL50 3 barrelling bluffs here, but then again i dont rep a strong hand as villain would expect me to check/raise flop or turn with 2 pair +.

      Preflop: AKs is definitely strong enough to 3bet vs a 17% opening range.

      Flop: Well c/c is the standard line but c/r is definitely going to be an option. It's hard for villain to expect you to show up with AK here but at the same time if you are flatting preflop not to trap and underrepresent your hand but to pot control then c/c makes more sense.

      River: I do think your hand is massively underrepresented which makes me more inclined to call. At the same time a bunch of draws got there and I prefer to have a blocker in my hand when I chose to bluff catch these spots.

      It's close, and I don't expect this nit to barrel thinly for value with AK/AQ on this river so I suppose AK is almost the same as AJ here and AJ would be a fold for me. I fold without a heart and call with a heart
