      Pre Flop: ($0.35) Hero is MP2 with A :diamond: K :diamond:
      1 fold, UTG+1 raises to $0.50, 1 fold, Hero raises to $1.50, CO calls $1.50, 3 folds, UTG+1 calls $1

      Flop: ($4.85) T :club: Q :spade: 2 :club: (3 players)
      UTG+1 checks, Hero bets $3.00, CO folds, UTG+1 raises to $7, Hero folds


      Villain is 22/16 over first 39 hands so far he's been aggressive on 1/5 of the flops he played so far, thus I'm going to guess he's more of an honest player.

      I 3bet to $2.25 or $2.5 at least to isolate him even more and get more value preflop.

      You can even raise to $3 if he is a giant fish, a thing to consider because you do want to be in absolute position postflop (You want CO/BTN to fold)

      As played, I'd like to know CO's stats because this kind of board is pretty ugly for AK due the amount of broadways possibilities which reduces your outs to 3

      Therefore I just check and see what happens ( you ch, CO bets x, UTG shoves, Hero folds for example ;) )

      As played I bet/call here with 6 outs because if you bet postflop, you are committed against UTG+1 with GS+2OCs minus discount

      since you have some equity and co doesn´t really bet always if you check flop i think checking is better than c-bet and then fold to raise
      you may have till 10 outs and you can always improve on the turn
      if you bet you should call that small raise, since I doubt you´re against set alwasy, so you likely have 10 outs to improve
