      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.1/$0.25 No-Limit Hold'em (7 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, K.
      MP1 posts deadblind, MP1 raises to $1.00, 2 folds, Hero calls $1.00, 2 folds, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($3.1) K, 6, 7 (3 players)
      BB bets $0.25, MP1 raises to $1.50, Hero calls $1.50, BB folds.

      Turn: ($6.35) Q (2 players)
      MP1 bets $3.75, Hero calls $3.75.

      River: ($13.85) Q (2 players)
      MP1 bets $7.00, Hero calls $7.00.

      Final Pot: $27.85.

      villain is 12/7
      on the flop it is easy call, but the turn card is ugly. Now KQ beats me and I am chopping with AK. AA, KK, QQ all beat me too. on the river even AQ beats me, so there is no hand I beat, should I fold?
      thank you :)

      first of all against most opponents i like 3b pre. He raises his post so his range is pretty wide imo. you can therefore 3b light and he should know that so he can 4b light/ call wide. If he 4b, just jam it and if he has KK+ then nh.
      As played i dont mind calling him down b/c he could be bluffing but it would be nice to know his AF. If he has a very low AF u can just fold turn. If he has a high AF then u can just call turn, call river especially when he is giving u such good odds.

      consider he posted deadblind and now raising first hand, his hand pf likely isn´t that strong that you shouldn´t 3-bet AK for value and play for stacks
      Postflop is likely fine. He is likely still playing that way AK and for that reason you can´t really fold your AK.
      He would very likely c/c turn himself with AQ and he can still have there 89 or random bluffs in his range
