      I would of 3-bet bigger prf because you are oop. So 0,70-0,75$.

      On the flop, im checking. Cause even if we have a middle pair only, we still can win the showdown. And if we cb, then we will have to fold against a raise. That would be a waste of equity imo. Vilain can often be on a pp and he can decide to turn his hand into a bluff flop after your check. So by c/c, you include also the bluff in the range of vilain. As played, im folding against an unknown vilain on turn.

      Ho and btw, your cb is wayy to small. If i cb here, im putting 0,80$

      I'd probably c/f, UTG's ranke is going to be prett A heavy, and if he has a hand like JJ/QQ he may even check back the flop.

      check/calling is good here but I'm always folding to the turn bet.

      I would bet smt to 0,6$ on the flop like I´d also make with AK
      once you get called i think c/f turn is best play, since players don´t call flop with air and then bluff turn if you check to them too often
