      pot sized bet on the river usually means strength right? or can I profitably call in this situation?

      Raise more pre-flop like 0.10$ or even 0.12$ since you're not in position. About post-flop: he obviously calls any Ax hand here, sometimes gutshots and maybe KJ. With his line I would put him on weak Ace. Just fold to his PSB since basically you can beat only air - busted gutshot.

      Hello foolboydesire,

      Preflop: Since we are OOP, I'd raise even more ~$0,12.
      PostfFlop: I'd CBet like $0,16 and otherwise fold on river, not much you beat there.

      Best regards.
