      aolyn lost -$0.08

      First of all, Im new at BSS :f_p:

      If someone unknown raises me preflop, what should i do?
      On the flop i have a very good board for me. I dont need to protect here and if i bet only a few hands like Kx will call me. So its very unlikely somebody connected to the board. Is it better to check/raise or just bet here?

      Is my amount bet ok?

      You're the pre-flop aggressor. Just bet out here with your TPTK. As played your AK might get calls from worse kings. If you check/raise quite a few of those weaker kings won't continue cause you've shown so much strength.

      Size is ok imo. Heads-up against 1 opponent you could proably bet a bit closer to half pot althou I don't think it matters at NL2. If someone was gonna call a 20c bet with 99 or something alike they'lll probably just call this 24c bet to. I think in general this is probably a good size for NL2 as a lot of people are just gonna play fit and fold and you want value from your hand.

      Regarding the question of what to do had you been raised pre-flop, I think that, at this limit, the proper move would be to re-raise with the intention of going all-in preflop. At NL10 or higher, in general, i think a fold would be best against a complete unknown.

      when table is tight, then you can fold AK, since I doubt a lot of players would 3-bet here with AQ or other random hands, so you´re mostly against QQ+/AK.
      imo c/r is overplayed, it is hard worse Kx hands to call c/r, so if you´re going to check then c/c is better, but I don´t see why you should check with tptk, when any Kx hand would call you down
      So I´d bet/bet/bet for value all three streets.
