      CO: $29.07 (116.3 bb)
      BTN: $20.53 (82.1 bb)
      SB: $9.11 (36.4 bb)
      BB: $25 (100 bb)
      Hero (MP): $27.67 (110.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is MP with K A
      Hero raises to $0.85, CO folds, BTN calls $0.85, 2 folds

      Flop: ($2.05) 4 A 5 (2 players)
      Hero bets $2, BTN raises to $4, Hero calls $2

      Turn: ($10.05) 4 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.50, BTN raises to $15.68 and is all-in, Hero calls $12.18

      River: ($41.41) 7 (2 players, 1 is all-in)


      BTN was 62/8/0 over 13 - an unknown recreational player
      FtCB: F - 75(4)
      AG% - 50 (43/50/100)

      Minraise usually looks strong, but the board is a bit wet and AK is the top of my calling range (I call 54/A4 and shove A5 or better myself).

      I'm folding AQ or worse and calling all FDs.

      A 4 is a great card as it blocks many combos that beat me. I bet small to induce and am happy to stack off in this spot.

      I would just 3-bet on the Flop and get it in. Bad players often raise Flops with a ton of weak top pair hands and AK is just crushing his raising range.

      As played i don't see any point in leading the Turn - If you call the Flop, it means that you think he has a polarized flop raising range and thus leading accomplishes nothing.
