      CO: $43.69
      Hero (BTN): $89.64
      SB: $156.26
      BB: $52.82
      UTG: $51.00
      MP: $66.44

      Pre Flop: ($0.75) Hero is BTN with 8 :club: 8 :heart:
      2 folds, CO raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, SB raises to $7, 2 folds, Hero calls $5.50

      Flop: ($16.00) K :diamond: 7 :heart: 8 :spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $12, Hero raises to $30, SB calls $18

      Turn: ($76.00) 4 :spade: (2 players)
      SB checks, Hero bets $52.64 all in, SB calls $52.64

      River: ($181.28) 2 :club: (2 players - 1 is all in)

      CO 21/9/0/AF 2.6 (92 hands)
      SB 21/14/6/AF 1.8 (78 hands)

      Preflop I call for set value against a tight rising player on the CO. After a squeeze from the SB I decide to call it again as we are both deep, I put him on a strong hand as he's not a type of player who is 3betting light especially from the SB so I give myself high implieds if I hit, and I can see him sometimes checking down high Aces on a low flop this deep so I can win unimproved (dunno if that's a good assumption and if it matters here).

      On the flop I hit so I have to go for it. I decide to raise it right here or should I just call? Do you think he's continuing with AK here? With AA? His call looks strong to me, but there's no way I'm folding here. Should I check to bluff induce?

      If your image is laggy then he is never folding there AK/AA, so I like your flop raise and turn shove
      If he has QQ-TT then he can easily c/f turn anyway or maybe even b/c flop, since you don´t represent anything by raising. Only bad thing is when he holds AQ/AJ. Not sure if he´d 3-bet these hands oop deep, but again not sure if he´d continue with blank turn card
      So raise flop seems fine. you can also min-raise to look it like a bluff
      Turn shove is fine. once he calls flop with AK/AA, he won´t fold to turn shove any more
