      turn check call and check call the river?
      if turn checked, is it ok to bet AK on this river for value? I think many could call this due to it looks like a bluff.

      I think its very good to bet on river to get called from weaker Kx and underpairs.

      BUt I think betting turn for value is also good to get from weaker Kx and underpairs, plus there are draws posible, and who knows - maybe they have them in 3bet pot.

      Hey W,

      Why do you cbet so small on the flop? From that point, it's already a non-standard line, what is your reasoning for it?

      I always cbet small on 3bet pots about 1/3 of pot, is it bad?

      I dont do that but for me it looks like making sence to cbet smaller. when we bluff - we need less fe. When we value bet - we get lighter calls.

      If you always do it, yes, it's bad. You should have a clear reason for doing it, not just an automated process.

      For this board texture and stack sizes I think you should definitely go close to 1/2 pot and continue from there. In this case I would most certainly vbet the turn as well.
