      vpip: 60, pfr: 60, af: 3.0, 5 hands

      Should i raise flop? I think he's not drawing too often, so i don't see evil in just calling. Again and again, seems that i should bet turn a bit more, but what about river? I bet small enough so he could call with worse Aces. Against a shove i should fold?

      Hello nktns,

      Preflop: Against such opponent you could even consider raising it right here but Calling and having position over him is also totally fine.

      As played
      Flop: We definitely have to raise here to protect our hand and he could easily have a weaker ace with what he is able to go broke or either maybe a draw against we want maximum protection and value.

      As played
      Turn: Likely would bet a bit bigger, ~$1.60.
      River: Against unknown I would however Bet/Fold in this situation, it's hard to Call there, since he ain't doing such moves with weaker hand, likely has the flush.

      Best regards.
