      Board is very dry so your bets don't have to be so large. I would bet 2/3 pot on flop and 1/2 pot on turn, when he leads out the river big you only beat his bluffs and I would fold AK there if he is ABC Tight-Passive player, but the main problem with this hand is that you created too large a pot with TPTK hand.

      Also, don't post results in the future as they may affect hand evaluations.

      I agree bet sizes are too big. Just go like 1.6$ flop and then smthing like 3$ on turn.

      I think potsize bet is also a little bigger on the turn, 2/3 should be fine
      If you don´t have any reads, then you can´t fold, since he can maybe play the same way A5, A4, 45 than boat and really hard him to have there 3x or 88 a lot of times.
