      IMHO you only get called by better hands if you reraise flop - the only advantage you can gain is over a donk on some weird flushdraw.

      Is it standard to only call with AKs on a 3bet preflop FR? I usually play SH, but I guess postflop play is about the same.

      When called flop as played and as I would have, ig turn bet is standard imo.

      Preflop call is fine in position, you usually don't want to put yourself in a bad spot by 4betting AKs 200bb deep since you'll only get called or shoved on by something like QQ+ most of the time.

      Don't raise the flop unless you feel comfortable making a broke/fold decision when he 3bets, which you probably aren't. Keeping the pot small deepstacked with TPTK is a fine plan to keep yourself out of trouble.

      If you look at this guy's aggression it drops considerably on the turn, which could mean either he gives up a lot or he goes into check/call mode for pot control way too often. Given that and the fact that he rarely check/raises there, i think betting for value is fine, and so is checking back to continue with the pot control planning to call a bet on any river as he might then valuebet worse or decide to bluff for some reason.

      Hope it helps.
