      Villain is new to table.

      3bet sizing is for 2.5bb openers.
      further I expect calls on flop from flush draws, underpairs (1 street).
      On turn I give villain a chance to bet himself because of K. Though I beat it and I could just go for close to pot bet.
      River I bet big to act as bluff and get call from KQ or weaker Ax

      Preflop: General rule of thumb for OOP 3-bet sizing - Make it around 3.5X. Of course as the open raise size gets larger, you want to decrease your multiplier. If someone opens to 5BB, then making it 17.5BB is completely unnecessary (14-15BB is fine). But if someone min-raises to 2BB, then making it 7-8BB is reasonable.

      Flop: Do note that AK probably 4-bets preflop here most of the time. This means that you are likely to have the best kicker here. You have an easy 3-barrel for value and hope he calls down with AJ or AT.
