      Preflop: Hero is SB with A:spade: , K:heart:
      3 folds, MP3 raises to $0,40, 2 folds, Hero raises to $1,20, BB folds, MP3 calls $0,80.

      Hero checks, MP3 bets $4,52 (All-In), Hero folds.

      Final Pot: $10,02

      That´s why I don´t like to build up big pot with my AK. With SSS strategy, no problem, all- in on the flop, but here I have to bet/fold.

      I have to call his pot size bet on the flop? What about the turn. Fold should be right option, but still thinking, he might have AK... and make another stupid call:(

      Hi Kaitz20

      Hand1, I think you played right.You must reraise AK pf as discussed before.
      He called your c-bet on the flop, which shows strenght.IMO check / fold turn was ok.
      Hand 2, I think your bet/call pf is ok, but I would fold his raise on the flop. He raised your pf bet . That puts him on QQ+, AK. You are behind in most cases

      In hand 2 I think I wouldve bet out like $1.75 to find out where I stand. I dont like check/fold even on this flop, why even call his reraise preflop in that case? Because if you already put him on that range, QQ+ and AK, youre already behind or at best having a coinflip.

      Pf, the call is ok. I´ve run this hand through Equilator, the odds are 1,57:1 and the pot odds are 2,58:1, on your $0,60 call.
      After the flop, I dont think it is worth carrying on because you are certainly behind in most cases

      Hi Kaitz20!

      Hand 1) Nice hand. You cannot call here with your gutshot draw and overcards.

      Hand 2) Bet/fold flop seems to be the best because most of the time you are still behind. To get a cheap information bet and fold to raise.

      Good luck at the tables!
