      Bet the flop bigger... he's not gonna call with an underpair on a AKx board and if he has an Ace you wanna valuetown him. There's also a flush and some gutshot straight draws out there. I'd bet at least $0.35 on the flop

      As played insta broke on the turn ofcourse but I would just make it $0.70 on the turn to I think.

      If the guy had Aces here, which is probably the case or I doubt you would've even posted this hand it's simply a cooler. This is a standard broke situation as there's waaay more hands that you've got beat that he'll pay you with then the other way around.

      I would also bet bigger on the flop... at least $0.40 because of the draws. Bet/shoving turn.

      What they're trying to say is that this guy's range of hands for calling your bet on the flop most likely won't change whether you bet 1/2 or 2/3 pot, so since you have a nut hand and there are some draws out, you should tend to bet the most you think you can get away with. $0.35 is fine to keep in draws and the occasional Kx, Ax likely wouldn't fold even if you potted it.

      I'd 2/3 pot the turn again and shove any river, which is about what you did / were about to do imo.

      Hope it helps.
