I have got to stop thinking every time an aggressive player bets they must be bluffing, especially if I miss by a mile
If you want him to think you're slowplaying, you should have a range of hands that you think you may get him to fold when you checkraise. There's no point in bluffing if you don't think he'll ever fold anything, right?
So, what hand - that makes sense and can beat AK - will he fold when you checkraise? Because you don't want him to fold AQ, of course. You'd much rather go to showdown against a hand that has only three outs to beat you than to successfully fold it out.
