This is a discussion on $2 NLHE 6-max: You thing i have to play more passively this hand with AhKh against him? within the online poker forums, in the Cash Game Hand Analysis section; Villian Stats (VPIP/PFR/AF): 17/13/40
After getting called on that flop with your hand and with that turn, I'm almost always resigning the hand on the turn. I'm also sizing my raise a little smaller pre-flop. I'm not playing stars these days and may be a little behind the curve here, but I'm also not playing drawing hands this strong and definitely not when I have very little chance to improve my hand to better than Ace high.
You were all happy I called until my river suckout!
I agree with Samuel and tbd. I would have raised pre-flop and checked the flop....it's too wet to bet with just over cards. If he bets, I'm done. No reason to wlak into a check-raise. He could have a wide range of hands that will beat you even if you pair the ace or king. Save money now and play it hard when you hit TPTK and a flush draw.

is a hand i would re raise my opponent and fairly large re raise but never my entire stack ace king doesnt always get there let alone hold while you are ahead.. if it against a very aggressive player play it like pocket aces you might have got him out and sometimes stealing is better then letting him make the move for you
preflop standard 3bet. Postlop it's always a check. The guy who is relatively tight (based on your stats) cold call your 3bet. His range there is almost always JJ, QQ and AK. So his range is very strong. You totally missed a board and there is no point to cbet. You don't even have a backdoor flushdraw. Versus a range I mentioned you have 32% and on this board you almost don't have any fold equity. Maybe only vs AKs in diamonds. To crush this limit you don't need to try to represent aces or kings and bluff boards which are not to good to bluff on particular situation.
