      Preflop: looks good

      Flop: Cbet is fine, I like the 1/2 to keep worse hands in.

      Turn: We can ck/call to allow him to bluff his floats or bet worse aces. I prefer the bet/fold without info here.

      River: What worse pot (shoves) this river? The best we can hope for is a split with AK. AQ/AJ always check back and lower pairs never bet the turn.

      So we should ck/fold this river without any info.
