      Hello BigAl123456,

      Preflop: Get it in preflop, I don't see any reason why we should be slowplaying our hand.

      As played
      Flop: I'd just bet the flop to protect against AK or 1card flushdraw or maybe even get value from weaker pairs.

      As played if flop was Checked behind
      Turn: Likely also Check behind, he wont Call us with a lot worse.
      River: Yes, you can likely bet smallish here, but we are likely Bet/Folding.

      Best regards.
