      Hello Filipstan,

      I'd CBet like $1,70 on flop and then bet the turn for free showdown as well maybe even a bit smaller like $3. And river is rather Check and hope to see a free showdown, there aren't just too many hands from which we getting value and he could easily have the Ax. Only reasonable hands I guess we get value from are TT,QQ, and not even sure that TT would Call on river.

      Best regards.
