      Flop; hard board for our AKs and I don't see value here but many times in the past I played x/c and it was wrong because we give free card, even betting for small amount it better so in this case I decided to bet for 1/3 psb flop, on the turn again 1/3 psb and give up on the riv. When mp reraise us we have easy decision about folding.
      It looks like good spot.

      Preflop: I think you are better off flatting here. MP seems to be the weaker player in the hand and you should be trying to let him come into the hand. By 3-betting here you are forcing him out. Always remember that the most profit is made from fishes and your goal as a player is to play as many pots with them as possible.

      Flop: I'm not really afraid of giving away free cards. Both the King and Ten improve AK here. How many streets of value do you think you can get with AK here?
