      According to basic SSS, if you have trash on the flop you can make your c-bet against one opponent but fold to resistance. So bet/fold here ;)

      Ok...thx for your replies guys...I wont play it like this anymore... :)

      but specialy on this flop - what could he actually hold? Small or middle pair(which he had) or two overcards like AQ, AJ,KQ,KJ and tried to bluff cause the board hardly hit me. On NL10 it's very often that guys doesnt give you ceredit if you cbet and reraise you...
      In this case I didnt have stats, cause few hands before my poker tracker fall down, but when I play a hand like this against aggresive opponent who calls preflop very loose I usually call his reraise on flop like this with AK.

      its possible the villan will be trying to bluff you but in general if u get reraised or check raised on the flop and dont have a big hand you should fold simply because most of the time u are behind and will lose a big pot. calling a flop reraise or check raise too often is one of the most common and expensive leaks.

      Assume Villain holds a pair 95% of the time and like 5% bluffing freq (which has live outs like 75o -> 14 outs which means you are still flipping)

      Just cBet/fold this one until you got pot odds of like 3.1:1 including rake reduction
