      Hmm on the flop I knew he was on a draw when he called ,and on the turn I thought that the 9 couldn't help him, also the possibility of a flush draw so I bet big, and the river what can I say, I think I rushed too much to bet.What is your opinion?
      I always have problems playing with AK..

      There's a gap in your thought process here :D You say you're pretty sure he's on a draw on the flop and then you say that the 9 couldn't have helped him.
      What draws could he have? AJ, AT, JT only. Does the 9 help any of them? ;)

      But, you can't assume he's always on a draw here. He could have draws, Kx, QX, 44.

      I like your big bet on the turn, becasue he still calls us with QJ, QT, KJ, KT... So there's a lot of value to be had.
      On the river however, we should be c/f always. Just take a look at the hands that I said would call us on the turn. Is there any hand that we still beat? ;)
