rigged? I don't think so, pretty standard, even because AKo is not unbeatable
OK, the villain had a set with T, but what did you expected he would raise $0.65 on SB less than a 66? for me nothing... don't be mad with me, this is just the truth
Hello there thomasguy3419, welcome to the CardsChat community and thank you for sharing your hand with us!
Having said that, there is nothing at all rigged, you are simply overplaying AK, like almost everyone at the micros.
You are opening 4x blinds, I dare to ask if you do that with all of your range or just when you are sweet (JJ+ AJ+)?
The size of the pot is already bigger than usual and SB 3-bets for 3x, give or take.
There are already 27 blinds on the pot for a flop.
Villain bets just one blind, and I don't know the nomenclature for this action, and Hero/MP elects to raise the size of the pot with...what??? Yes, you have a pretty poor equity here, only with 2nd nut flush Back Door and Back Door Straight plus Two Overcards, and you raise for almost the size of the pot? Do you really have faith that your AK is okay here or has good equity for later streets? Are you sure is there anything rigged?
First, when SB 3-bets UTG, it can have on its range 77, 88, 99, TT, JJ, QQ, KK, AA and maybe AK, AQ, AJ. It is easy to observe that the SB has range advantage on this situation and we don't have it.
Another coin flip. In this case you must make 3-bet of size 2.5x the raise of villain and you exercise all the action in preflop. Villain is like 20 bb of stack effective, this needs to be resolved in preflop. For short stack players (45 bb or less) flips are more profitable in cash games, compared to full stacks. But you should do them with strong hands like this or high-mid pockets.
I don't consider it played so aggressively. Believe me that I could have other lines of thought and execute the most passive way, especially when it comes to cash game. Giving more value as bets, could make a better reading of the villain, make him lose his hand, it would not cost so many chips.

You need 33% equity for profit call, you have near 43%. Call
On the flop the fish makes minraise most likely he has some sort of weak made hand or a flush draw. Since we have 39%equity, we have no reason to bet, we just call. Hero has played a raise call, we only raise garbage, hands stronger or equal to our strength will continue
