      Villain is 81/20 AF=1.3 and 3bet PF= 11% though 75 hands

      Grabbed by Holdem Manager
      NL Holdem $0.10(BB) Replayer
      SB ($10)
      BB ($14.50)
      Hero ($12.90)
      UTG+1 ($8.85)
      UTG+2 ($10.10)
      MP1 ($13.45)
      MP2 ($10.35)
      CO ($8.75)
      BTN ($1.75)

      Dealt to Hero A:diamond: K:diamond:

      Hero raises to $0.40, fold, fold, fold, MP2 raises to $0.70, fold, fold, fold, fold, Hero calls $0.30,

      FLOP ($1.55) K:club: 3:heart: 4:heart:

      check, MP2 bets $0.70, Hero raises to $2.20, MP2 calls $1.50,

      TURN ($5.95) K:club: 3:heart: 4:heart: 2:diamond:

      Hero bets $4, MP2 calls $4,

      RIVER ($13.95) K:club: 3:heart: 4:heart: 2:diamond: 7:club:

      Hero bets $4, MP2 calls $3.45,

      I'm not sure about PF play, IMO my AKs is good for 4bet against him, but I'm sure as hell this villain will just call 4bet and without A or K on flop I would have a hard situation OOP, so I decided to call with great odds, what do you think? Turn bet size is ok?

      I think that you should have 4-bet him, but the rest is good. I like that check-raise on the flop against this aggressive guy.

      81/20/11% 3bet... I'm 4betting this guy with AK. ESPECIALLY because you say he's not gonna fold to your 4bet most likely. 4bet your AK for value pre-flop imo. That will also mean you have initiative on the flop, and you can just bet out on that K high board and be all-in on the turn.

      I'm often not very happy about getting 3bet with AK oop either on these kinda stakes cause if you 4bet and get called you're often facing QQ+ or AK... in this case against this player thou... valuetown imo!

      The more that guy calls preflop with worse hands, the more equity you have.

      Sometimes you will miss the flop but might be able to take it down with a c-bet.
      Sometimes you will miss the flop and have to give it up.
      Sometimes you will hit big, and you will take his stack if he has a piece too.

      It might take you an hour of 4betting or it might happen immediately, but in the long run you'll get money from him by coming into big pots with the best hand.

      Don't be shy and 4bet the fish.

      Hope it helps.
