      3bet preflop, surely?

      The flop and turn calls are fine. On the river you can bet half pot (and call a shove) in my opinion because he can let himself think you're betting a busted flush draw or something. I think on NL10 people will make a mistake with AQ, AJ here enough for you to bet.

      Reraise preflop! Take the most value out of that player raising any ace because it's "loose style just like on TV!".
      The calls are fine.

      I wouldn't bet river because the pot is already big for a TPTK. But I have the habit of playing on tables with tight players.

      Hello Alficor1,

      Preflop: I'd just 3bet fore value here, our hand is way too strong to just Call.
      Postflop: Likely fine but I'd bet ~$3 on river for value. He is still able Call us with weaker Ace.

      Best regards.
