      Pre: I 3bet him 2 times in the last 3 orbits,so I call cause I was expecting a 4bet from him and I didn't want to go broke with AJ here
      Posflop:I think my flop raise is a bit to small and same goes for the river bet.
      Is it my play ok?

      Hello dudiloiu,

      Preflop: I really like the way you are thinking about the hand and also taking into consideration your previous hands. I would have done the same, just because we have 3bet him earlier few times. He could easily be tilted and even 4bet against us.
      Flop: As we hit pretty hard then I'd also prefer to take Check/Raise line to take balance against him, he is going to CBet most of his range. But I would likely raise a bit bigger, ~$0.90 to avoid any kind of draws and we still get value from Kx type of hand.

      As played
      Turn: You might even bet bigger here, ~$1.40.
      River: Bet for value.

      Taking bet turn & bet river line yourself is since we often might see him just Checking behind on turn and we will miss a lot of value.

      Best regards.
