      Hi,


      I think it's okay preflop since the 3-bet is small and your AK is suited, so its postflop playability is a lot better than if it was offsuited. Standard probably still is to 4-bet against loose players and fold against tight players tho.

      As played postflop I like it. Your opponent could have checked back a boat or AK/AA on the flushing turn and if he is any good he won't really call the river with a worse hand like JJ, it's just pretty obvious what you have at that point. If he's fishy he can make that call with worse hands but he's also somewhat more likely to try and trickily play a boat, so it kinda evens out.


      Hope it helps.
