      Hi,
      This hand was played during a particularly good round for me. I was dealt AK on the button and pushed after a raise from MP2; it turned out that the raiser had 77, and I won this flip in a rather dramatic way - the board came 8 9 Q Q 8 :) In MP1, I got AK again

      I believe everything's fine preflop and on the flop :)
      Turn: Any reason to be afraid of AQ or a set and not to bet?
      River: Frankly speaking, I didn't notice that the King on the river was the 3rd heart. Even so, I think the push was correct. Is it so?

      Thanks!

      no you don´t need to be afraid. i prefer to bet a bit more on the flop for protection. (e.g. 2/3-3/4potsize) if you calc his OaO you will see that if he just add implied odds, his call on the flop is not as bad as it seems.

      I generally see 3-outers (=Spiking) as Badbeats so I dont mind

      But I generally bet like $1.5 regardless you got the A

      On the River, you can check behind but I think pushing is also okay since if he has Ax he calls you anyway.

      Without statistics, I shove river ;)
