Hi, how would you play this board with AKo?
My preflop 3bet range is: TT+, ATs+, A5s-A2s, KQs, QJs, JTs, T9s, AKo
I will cbet JJ+, ATs, backdoor FD with A2-A5, suited AJ-AK with backdoors, KQs with BDFD, QJs with BDFD
Will check with any TX lower than AT, with TT because I block lot of villains continuing range + we don't need to protect our hand on this board + I will protect my checking range like this, check with A4s, and with the rest of air without backdoors - suited aces without BDFD and offsuit AX
I will X/C with TT, TX, A4s which is something like 37% of my checking range. I should therefore sometimes X/C with AKo, not everytime but like 50% of times so I wont X/F too often to bleed money.
Turn is big mistake, should be fold. I don't have to X/C hand this weak again.
But question is what strategy would you play on the flop and why ? Bet polarized range like me or cbet small with most of range?
What range would you cbet here and what sizing would you choose and why? Thanks for any ideas
