      Against unknown, Id rather bet/fold $7.50 since - until he calls on turn - we should see ourselves as ahead and try to extract value. Betting 1/2p looks a bit weak and we look like we are ready to be taken off the pot.

      Once he calls on turn ch/f river looks fine. He probably doesnt turn his made hands into a bluff often enough for us to bluff catch, so we are mostly facing a flush/2pair/set when he bets the river.

      7.5$ screams for blocking bet.
      As strong hand as yours I´d rather go for value 14$ and then fold to shove or if you check and he bets 14$ then I would call him down (I´d put out myself the same bet, so even if I´m always beat I don´t loose more if I´d bet msyelf and I can see his hand at showdown that has huge +ev in the future if I know he is slowplaying turn flushes then I would never give him any respect to his turn raises)

      I was talking about turn bet size. My fault for being unclear.

      I also then messed up :) . 7.5$ on the turn is fine and 5.5$ might look weak, so he may turn his Ax hands into bluffs and raise off our hand
