      71/26, 42h

      open 3bb, call 15 bb 3bet IP w AKo, call 2/3 cbet w GS + overs, call close to pot 2 paired turn w A high - STATION

      On river ther are many flushes that beat me. But once he raises I think: he has A decent amount of time and I get so much value frpom A. He is never folding it.

      Actually I raise and thinking I dont' want to get in, but ended up calling because I felt I cannot get out anymore.

      feel somehow that this is played badly. So should I stil bet/3bet/fold or just bet/call even when calling looks really weak ?

      Hi Speed,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I think your flop and turn line is definitely fine. We can't really bet turn and expect much FE, if any.

      As played I don't think I'd expect a ton of Ax hands raising there when the flush completes and we bet this strong. After all he checked the turn.

      Thus I think you are being very optimistic thinking that he'd min raise many Ax hands.

      As played I think we have a call at most if not a bet/fold to begin with. I don't see any value in a small 3-bet and if you call a shove you might as well shove it yourself but I feel any sort of raise is spew.
