      i think you were lucky there that co did't have an big pair in the hole.
      people raise with pairs more often than with ax

      Maybe I was lucky, I don't know, I just feel that AK is too good to give up against a 3bet. That's why I've posted it.

      I he had reraised me once more pre-flop I would give the hand up. But he just calls me which I think indicates a lot of weakness. If he's playing QQ or JJ for set value and folds after my cbet if missed the flop I get the pot in over 80% of the cases. If he's going to call my cbet if he misses what's the point of just calling pf and giving me the initiative? If he has AK or AQ and continues playing only after hitting a pair I also win a lot after cbetting and even if he hits we split in the worst case scenario. If he has AA or KK, well be it.
