      I think you could make a little higher 3-bet on preflop just because you're playing out of position, and AK is a kind of a hand that doesn't like family pot. On turn you beat only incredibly stupid bluff so fold is obligatory. Opponent has a flush in 90% of the cases imo. Even more when taking into consideration his call on flop

      Yeah, I know that, but his bet was very low in comparison to the pot so I thought it's worth calling even though I was behind in most of the cases. I didn't calculated it however, so the decission was made on the spot - I have to work on that more.

      If you check turn, then better is c/f.
      He won´t bluff there often enough that you can call.
