Villain - ~20 hands - 50/33/1.0

Should I be checking the turn here when another heart comes?

I don't think you played this hand wrong it just happens. Looks like 1c/2c cash, full ring two empty seats nearly a 6-max table.

You 3bet AK to an utg open "strong hand or loose player"? I still bet the turn, I like your bet size. We can represent that flush card - it may look as bad for the villain?

Your bet size on the river? It's so small we can be bluffed off our relative hand strength anyway. So at these stakes probably check fold river. Unless a donk makes a tiny bet, then we pay them off anyway. Why?

Just my opinion, other posters may have different ideas.

I don't mind the turn bet, but when my turn bet gets called, I need to check the river and hope to get to showdown. If the opp makes any sizable bet.. I'm mucking.
