      Preflop is fine. First thought was that your play was fine but the more I think about it the more I hate the river call. Even if his range here is JJ+ and AQ+ which I don´t think it is the call is EV-.

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Preflop, flop and turn are played well. On the river it's an easy check/fold because you didn't hit your flush and your TPTK isn't good anymore on that board.

      Good luck at the tables!

      If you only call pf,you have 2 possible plays here......imo
      Play c/r flop here or c/c flop and c/r turn allin.
      I would c/r the flop,AK is very good hand and deserves to be played aggresively..

      If you c/r the flop and get another raise, what would you do? fold? go all-in? I don't want to risk my chips on a drawing hand in that spot and I don't want to fold my draw. That's why I think calling is the best thing to do here.

      Good luck at the tables!
