      Hey it's NL10, no point in slow playing your AK.
      preflop: 3bet! You will only hit your A or K 1 out of 3 times. You also want to get value from your AK.
      flop: SD an FD are out there. raise, for value and protection.
      Turn: If you raised in the previous streets you can shove it here.

      Absolutely agree w/ Dragar and Maya. No reason at all to slow down post flop. Maybe you can flat preflop from position if MP3 is a money party maniac and we dont need to play for stacks preflop against someone who is stacking off with random rubbish postflop, but postflop there you need to kick both to take value from worse aces / spade draws *or* be able to fold to a re-raise which would indicate aces up or a set.

      AQ AJ AT from reasonable villains will nearly never 3bet us on the flop here so we have a safe raise-fold line.

      Got any reasons for the preflop call, please state them :)

      Standard: 3bet preflop

      As played:
      Raise flop to protect from the draws that are in his range.

      I don't understand why you didn't atleast shove the river if you decided to call down? Were you expecting to be behind? ?(
