      Hand recorder used for this poker hand: Elephant 0.69 by www.pokerstrategy.com.

      Preflop: Hero is BU with A:club: , K:spade:
      MP2 folds, MP3 raises to $0,75, CO folds, Hero calls $0,75, SB calls $0,65, BB calls $0,50.

      River: ($7,50) 6:spade: (2 players)
      SB bets $5,50, MP3 calls $5,50.

      Final Pot: $18,50

      I am not sure if the best line against MP3 is call PF or 3bet/fold. First I think I must look after the people who act after me. SB and BB are both people that are not really aggresive so for. So the chanche they squeeze is not big. only bot players call too much PF.

      I have 200 hands of MP3 and he plays 15/15 so he is a nit. I can call and hope that SB an BB fold.

      I can also 3bet him because there are also PP in his range and weaker aces but he fold them if I 3bet. Than I pick up the pot Preflop.

      15/15 is not complete nit and he would still open 15-20% hands from MP, AK is way ahead of that range so imo it is easy 3-bet.
      If you want to keep in worse Ax hands, you can also consider just calling.
      I would never 3-bet/fold Ak, since they would sometimes shove with AQ and also a lot of times they have there TT-QQ which you´re doing fine
      postflop is fine

      Another dry j high board where villian could hv easily
      cbet any 2 since he was aggressor preflop. Float on flop is fine but i would like to fire on the turn for mor info. If called, check/fold is the easy option on the river. Alternatively if u think he can throw away his pp, betting on the river is gd
