You could. But no.

In the vast majority of cases you will either lose all the money or win the same amount of money if you bet 1/2 stack on turn.

I know he has aggressive stats (not sure over how many hands), but have you seen him calling off with draws or weak pairs? Based on this one hand, I would peg him as a player that his very aggro, but that likes to be in control and make moves.

With that being said, I would almost definitely 4b/get it in preflop. I'm not sure I like the flop call. You're oop, and sort of handcuff yourself to what you can do on the turn. As played, I think you get the most value from just turning your hand into a bluff catcher and calling down, because he's probably going to bet his entire range at that point.

Honestly though, if you really feel as though you have the best hand, which I imagine you did after calling his raise on the flop. Then I almost like a min 4b, and then calling a shove.

If we're considering calling off, why not shove the flop?

Just got slow rolled by some random with aces, time to take an automatic weapon to the nearest crowded public space.

"Mixing it up" doesn't magically rationalize anything you do. It's like you walk up to a pencil sharpener, pencil in hand, and think, "Everyone expects me to sharpen this pencil, but I'm going to mix it up." Then you whip out your cock and sharpen that instead and yell, "Ha ha, bitches, you never saw that coming!" Well, no, they didn't. But you still have a dull pencil and bleeding dick.

Bad play because AK is just a drawing hand. Why invest in a coin flip? This is hand most people give way to much value. If anyone has a pair. Ur screwed.

I agree, AK is only good when short stack to push preflop
