      This is so weird. I should probably be 3-betting preflop here or folding? I play Check call on the flop for some deception. I check-raise the turn for value from weaker Ax and protection vs draws and he calls which I don't really expect. I play check call on the river because I think he can bet weaker Ax and bluffs here.

      Not really sure about check-calling here upon analysis. He should be checking behind any Ax kind of hand and will mostly show up here with 2pair hands. I don't think he often bets so small with a bluff.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Preflop: You could try squeezing, although I am not really a big fan of squeezing against stations.
      Flop: I'd just donk myself on flop to protect from any kind of draws.

      As played
      Turn: I'd donk the turn at least while we don't want to see Check behind on turn. But as played I don't like the Check/Raise at all, we just isolating against better hands.

      As played if turn was Check/Raised
      River: You can likely Call for the given odds but overall play, wasn't the best one I could imagine.

      Best regards.

      That's why posting hands is good. :) You will start getting the point and as well even if you did play correctly you will get confirmed that from others. Keep going the good work! Meanwhile good luck on tables and will be waiting for more hands.
