Preflop, with AK, I'm going to make a standard raise, which for this blind level is to 2.5BB+1BB for each limper, so I will raise to 500.

The key to the hand is the flop bet. I want to make a standard bet and with one opp, a standard bet is 1/2 pot, so this is the bet that I will make.. not more, not less.

When the opp calls the flop bet, then I need to check down the turn/river, as my hand does have showdown value, but may not be the best hand. If the opp would have bet either street, then I need to fold.

Especially in a league game, I do not want to overbet anything. Every chip that I can save will make me last longer and let me accumulate more and more league points.
