Re: AK fail bluff give me advice please!
You have to remember that low limit players don't like to fold often. They would rather say they think someone has AK rather than a big pair cause that's their justification for calling. Just learn to only bet for value on these lower limit games. Try not to bluff.
You could have easily had AA KK QQ or AQ that went for 3 barrels and he would have just folded and not said a word then fold. These low limit players justify bad plays however they can and when that lose it was either "I had to call" or "it was just a cold deck" or " he is a lucky bastard" perhaps a flop bet. Then turn and river check. If he is calling flop light cause he thinks your light with AK then you have the nut no pair. Which people still don't get.
Calling your preflop 3 bet and flop bet. He almost always has a queen or some type of draw with pair or combo draw. Which he isn't likely folding on turn or river. So best to shut down and check turn.
But remember since your going to take this line with AK. You need to sometimes take this line with AA or KK. Meaning cbet. Then turn check raise. If he checks back. Usually bombing river to look like steal that you haven't given up. Always have to merge your ranges
