      No real reads on villain (20/6/0 over 20 hands). My plan on turn was to either shove it or try to check it down and see cheap showdown.

      With AK I never really know where I am at, should I just go with the hand in a reraised pot if I hit A or K and theres a draw out there?

      Hi random3!

      I would definitely bet the turn here. The board is very drawheavy and you have to protect your hand. Since he only has ~$5 left, just push all-in. Maybe he calls with a flushdraw or straightdraw.

      Good luck at the tables!

      You made a nice, fat pot preflop precisely so that you can get your money in with TPTK against a willing opponent, so go for it. At NL10, a random opponent is calling with worse hands.
