      make a continuation bet. Represent Aces or Kings. With this line you are saying: "I have air, ace high, plz. check down with your pocketpair and pick up the pot".

      I thought that he might have pocketpair. But turned out that I won that pot, so always don´t have to re-raise.

      Never take the end result into your hand analysis. That´s irrelevant.
      I would bet / fold the turn.

      Problem with here is that he mostly should have middle or overpair. Thatś why I mentioned that he doesn´t always need to have pp here to bet out. That is important to know, because i can win with A high.
      If I can win with A high, then I don´t have to re-raise flop, which means 3$ raise- I´m representing very big hand but he still might call with pp or re-raise with set and then i have to fold.
      Betting turn doesn´t make sense, because I should re-raise flop if I had overpair and he would check/call my turn bet with pp. So imo it is wa/wb situation and since I have chance to win it on the showdown i don´t have to bet on the turn or on the river.

      I reraise such small flop donks: this way you play like you have an overpair and he often has to fold. If he calls, you typically see the turn and river for free.
