Three instances of A-K @ 1/2 NL

New table, all 3 hands occur in the first 2 hours. No real reads on opponents beyond the fact that all 3 will likely stack off with top 2, likely can get away from TPTK given appropriate action. Rec players who aren't limp/calling K-7o. Standard.

Hero $400

1st AK (offsuit) in SB

UTG folds, UTG+1 ($400) makes it $7,folds to UTG+4 ($300) who calls, folds around to hero. Action?




2nd AK (hh) in the SB. Folds to UTG+2 who makes it $15. 2 callers behind, we call.

Flop ($60): Ad Kd Qs

We bet out $45 with top two. UTG+2 calls, it folds all the way around, head's up.

Turn: 2h

Hero: ??



3rd AK Hero dealt Ah Kh in the SB. 6 Limps, hero makes it $15, 1 caller.

Flop ($40) Kd Qd 9s

Hero??

Raise bet bet 100% unless there are very specific reads on villains.

Re: Three instances of A-K @ 1/2 NL

Hand 1 I like a 3bet to $40. I like making it on the bigger side to encourage a fold preflop and avoid the rake even though we're strictly doing it for "value". Fold to a 4bet.

Hand 2 Why didn't you squeeze pre in this hand? I think even though he made it 15 I would still 3bet because people cold call so wide preflop. I would bet flop bigger, no-ones folding KQ, a flush draw, or an ace for at least one street. Turn I would continue to bet.

Hand 3 I'd make it 20 pre. Try not to overcomplicate it, even if someone thinks you're nutted people won't/can't fold a pair + sd, flush draw etc, probably fold if raised.

This. Also, your raise size is too small in hand 3.
