      Hello cutegoldfish,

      Flop: I'd CBet even bigger here, ~$0,60.
      Turn: For the reason that he wont Call us anyway with a lot worse here, unless he has a FD he ain't going to Call and let him bluff his float, Check/Call is considerable.
      River: But I wouldn't Call it here, for the reason he is potting it and I rarely see this being a bluff or either a very weak Ace. Rather has a pretty strong hand there, therefore without any reads or stats I am not going to Call it.

      Best regards.
