      CO was 26/5/4 over 59.

      I should have made my cbet a little bit bigger (for some reason I thought the pot was smaller).

      I think it's possible that this was induced by my small cbet.
      Even if my OC's are live I have roughly 12% equity and I do not have the right odds. Do I have implieds though?
      It's possible that he calls if the river is a K, not sure about an A. Also, I have reversed implied odds vs flushes.
      So folding seems like the safest (best?) play.

      AK high has good SD value vs a wide range. And villain is bad so I doubt he'll put in 3 barrels here. I'll probably c/c twice by default - I think he will bluff often enough to make this play +EV.

      AK cannot really bluff out better hands - Pairs are never folding
      AK rarely gets value from worse - Maybe he calls with some worse Ace highs occasionally and calls with draws which are underdogs vs AK high but he'll bluff on a later street

      So the best play is to check/call. Betting makes more sense vs a tougher opponent who is not letting you showdown your hand all the time.
