      BB:
      $9.75


      Preflop: Hero is BU with A, K.
      UTG1 raises to $1.00, 5 folds, Hero calls $1.00, SB folds, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($3.1) A, 5, 9 (3 players)
      BB checks, UTG1 bets $2.00, Hero raises to $6.50, BB folds, UTG1 raises to $28.05, Hero folds, UTG1 gets uncalled bet back.

      Final Pot: $9.6.

      Villain is 19/12 ~200 hands

      I'm not sure what the shove means, but after reviewing it looks like he is freerolling me with AxKd or has me dominated with AA, possibly KxKd. Clear fold?

      I don't really like how you played this hand. Why would you not 3bet from the buttom with AKs. Then in a 3 bet pot that flop is much easier to play. As played i guess it is just about a fold.

      Hello,

      Preflop: I am 3betting here with my AKs.

      As played
      Flop: Raise/Fold seems to be reasonable but more I would consider just Calling and trying to keep the pot low and hoping that the 4th diamond doesn't arrive.

      Best regards,
      Rensu
