      Preflop: Hero is UTG2 with A:heart: , K:heart:
      UTG1 folds, Hero raises to $2.00, MP1 folds, MP2 calls $2.00, 4 folds, BB calls $1.50.

      The only question I have is on the flop, should I have pushed or make a smaller cbet?

      Hello Brian997,

      I should have c/f the Flop, no PPs will fold here + some weird combodraw has u beat as well.

      What are the statistics of Villain?

      In general I prefer c/f >>> Push >>> small bet.

      If villain is loosish, to get value out of A high. There are guys out there who can go a bit over the top calling AK,AQ,AJ,AT, KQ, KJ etc even QJ and wider sometimes in spots like this.

      Or;

      If villain is overly tight folding 70%+ to cbets you can take advantage of how little this board hits most peoples ranges and make him fold a lot. (that said if most of his range is worse than ours and he is suitably passive, why don't we just check down for SD value?)

      If you have a made hand here, I would or bet $3 (1/2 pot to get more value) or shove directly.

      Both options have its disadvantages & advantages
