[NL2-NL10] AK vs. Flop Reraise/Bet Turn - Opinion

      I need some opinions on this play. It bothers me that a 'fishy' player would reraise the flop like this. His turn bet wasn't that strong and I felt like he wasn't a good deceptive player. I felt after the turn bet that I hand the stronger hand...

      Hand converted with online hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.05/$0.1 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      MP2 (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is MP2 with A, K.
      Hero raises to $0.30, 3 folds, SB calls $0.25, BB calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.9) 7, K, 9 (3 players)
      SB checks, BB checks, Hero bets $0.80, SB folds, BB raises to $2.10, Hero calls $1.30.

      Turn: ($5.1) T (2 players)
      BB bets $3.00, Hero raises to $9.18, BB calls $6.18.

      River: ($23.46) 2 (2 players)

      Final Pot: $23.46.

      Results follow:

      BB shows high card ace(Ah Qh).
      Hero shows a pair of kings(As Kc).

      Hero wins with a pair of kings(As Kc).

      PS: I hope I did this right...first hand posted.

      Totally read-dependent. If we only go with "he's fishy" and assuming he's overall aggressive, I'd play it pretty much the same way you did. On a dry board I'd just call him down to keep all his bluffs in his range, but seeing how the board is already pretty wet in that case I think it's best to just shove the turn. If we just call and the river is like the Qh we'll cry.

      Hope it helps.
