      AK is my nemesis, I never know when to fold and when to push. It's a strong hand but somehow I'm losing money with it. It happens because I've been coming into too big pots with it and now I decided to be a little more careful.
      The first hand:

      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)
      Position:
      Stack
      SB:
      $3,71
      Hero:
      $5,80

      0,02/0,04 No-Limit Hold'em (9 handed)
      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Texas Grabem 1.9 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is MP1 with K:diamond: , A:diamond:
      2 folds, Hero raises to $0,16, 4 folds, SB calls $0,14, BB folds.

      Flop: ($0,36) Q:heart: , A:heart: , K:heart: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $0,32, SB folds.

      Final Pot: $0,68


      Is it ok to bet on one-color flop against one opponent? Is the bet size ok?

      And then I got another AK on the very next hand and got called by the same player:


      Known players: (for a description of vp$ip, pfr, ats, folded bb, af, wts, wsd or hands click here)
      Position:
      Stack
      BU:
      $3,55
      Hero:
      $5,99

      Preflop: Hero is UTG+2 with K:heart: , A:club:
      UTG+1 folds, Hero raises to $0,16, 4 folds, BU calls $0,16, 2 folds.

      Flop: ($0,38) K:spade: , 5:spade: , 9:diamond: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,28, BU calls $0,28.

      Turn: ($0,94) 6:spade: (2 players)
      Hero bets $0,64, BU raises to $3,11 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $4,69

      Again a flush-draw is possible and I'm against the same opponent. I thought he thought I'm bluffing so now when I look at the hand again I think the flop bet was to low, if I were again in this situation I would bet $0.36 or something like that.
