comment NL200: Many possible lines to showdown in this 3-bet pot
if the turn is an Ace or a King and you barrel it, you can not just give up all rivers! would you do the same with AK, AQ,KQ,AA,KK etc. ? .. and why do you check behind when you improve? I mean, ok you can never be too careful I guess..Do you check behind the straight on the turn? is that what you mean?

comment NL200: Difficult River Situation; Whether To Bluff Or Not?
Try bluffing and you will be called 90% of the times. Bluffing is not the right play. You won't fold out enough of his range to make it a profitable play. You are never representing a hand like AK when checking the turn, not even KQ,KJ. The hands you are repping is such a narrow part of your value-range! They will call you down sooo many times when you bet this river. It just looks way too bluffy. If you wanna bluff, barrel the turn!

comment Do I call a turn all-in with KK with against a possible flush?
Against an opponent which OP describes, I would certainly widen his 3b calling range here! He could most definetly call with all types of broadway cards, suited/offsuit connecters and medium pairs. Players like this guy almost never gets fancy with his premium hands like AA or KK. And if so, he would have reraised HERO on the flop. it just does not make any sense to checkcall the flop and donkbet-shove the turn with a hand like AA... other than that I agree with your analysis!

comment Do I need to change my tactics playing pocket rockets (AA) to maximize their potential?
Ok, I have a good scenario actually. When you are on the money bubble in a tournament and people on your table are shoving really light, you can limp your AA in early position and hope for a shove :) Other than that I never limp.

It may seem that the rule I just wrote only applies to flush draws.. I hope you understood that it works the same in any other situation as well! just find how many cards you need to hit to make your hand, and that is how many "outs" you have.
