      Pre-flop: good play
      Flop: evaluate your bet .60 this only leaves you .70, not really enough to make a follow up bet with 2.10 in the pot. In addition after the flop you are still in good shape, you have 2 overcards to the board, and a longshot straightflush draw, so you cant fold to a re-raise anyway. Personally I would go all-in on the flop.

      You can play this hand in 2 different ways

      Either Pushing on the Flop but you should make this move as well with AA,KK,QQ and other hands

      Continuation bet following by a 2nd barrel if a scare card comes. In this case the 2nd Q, so I would have go all-in on the Turn.

      I like the way you played the hand, you saw the river with 1 bet and can be pretty sure that you are behind. No need to over bet the flop, I think the Fold equity is nearly the same.

      I think ysessa just pointed out one of my problems playing AK... I often push when I miss.... at the same time I always push when I hit AK... or with QQ+. After looking at this hand, I think the next time I find myself in position with AK I might check a miss...
