      ____________________________________

      Wasn't sure whether to call or raise preflop here, but decided to call.
      Called on flop because I didnt believe he was on a flush draw and that i was still ahead, same on turn and river.

      Any thoughts? See any big errors?

      I'd would re-raise pre-flop almost all the time. I think calling is ok if you know your villain will bet all 3 streets with a worse A.

      This. Him valuebetting worse Ax into you is what you hope for when you flat AK, so we have no choice but to call him down and hope for the best, barring a read that he's never firing 3 streets with AQ.


      Hope it helps.
