When to bet with AK on the Flop

If it is checked to you and there are not many opponents (3 at most, hopefully 1 or 2 only), then you should always bet. The first reason is that you may still have the best hand and pick up the pot right there. The second reason is that even if you do not currently have the best hand, it is very possible you could catch the best hand on the Turn or River. For example, you raised pre-Flop in late position and both blinds call. The Flop comes 8-6-3 rainbow, and it is checked to you. You should bet and hope they both fold. If you get check-raised, you can call because you will usually have enough pot odds unless he has two pair or has one of your cards counterfeited.
