      Yeah would raise preflop for value. Flop is fine vs passive player. I would bet turn and river as well though.

      This. Seeing a flop 4-way with AK out of position really isn't the way you want to play that highcarded hand against a bunch of fishy players. Just 3-bet to $0.65 or so and expect them to call with worse a lot. If somebody other then MP1 4-bets tho, you can probably find a fold since I doubt your AK is faring well at that point against passive players.

      Postflop you just cannot expect these players to bet for you, they suck they'll check back worse hands way too often for you to pass up on valuebetting 3 streets there by default. These players more frequent mistake is calling too much with crap, so bet when you have good hands.


      Hope it helps.
