      Since the board was not paired i was only concerned if he maybe holds Ace of spades, but i thought that would be very unlikely. did i make a mistake playing this hand, e.g. being too agressive?

      Hello shogun2313,

      Flop: Your raise is way too small here, I'd likely raise it bigger to get bigger protection from A:spade: and maybe even value from some other hands. Maybe even ~$2.

      As played
      Turn: Don't like the raising here, mostly getting folded anyway from a lot weaker hands and Called by maybe sets or As. Therefore I would likely just Call and reevaluate river. His donking in on turn is pretty strong, could easily be even As type of hand.

      Best regards.
