      I think you are almost always against a low/medium pocket pair here (raise/call line preflop), which on this board screams set/fh, so you must find a fold somwhere in the hand...thats why I would play cbet/fold on flop.

      On the flop we have to decide how to go on with the hand. If you pus he will fold his air-type hands. If you bet like you did you give him the opportunity to bluff push AQ/Aj - all these hands. If you bet like you did, you are committed - you get 1:5 odds, which is enough to call for you over card outs. Sometimes your AK is even good.

      Best regards,
