With a hand like AK you're looking to hit a TPTK type hand, which is a hand that usually wins at SD. So you open to 5bb because calling stations are around and villain is just that. Fine.
You flop the nuts! Yes, it's the the absolute nuts, but you want to be treating it as such vs this villain until he makes it clear he's got you beat. So start shovelling the money in, hoping he has yet again called with a weakass ace OOP.
Flop, make it 18c, or 20c, w/e. Turn almost pot again. River, no checking it back allowed! BET!
Do you only remember the times when he hits his 3 outer with A6o? What about all those times you had a big draw and he called you down with A5o? Take his money, because the reason you
don't call an UTG open with Arag is for this precise reason. Make him pay for his mistake.
