      With top pair top kicker I value bet on 3 streets. Usually if a random player at NL 5 shows aggression, I'm very reluctant to continue playing a marginal hand. Any weaker hand I would have folded in that spot, but TPTK is kind of a boarder line case.

      Hello StaringAtGoats,

      You may even bet the flop bigger like at least $0,30. And otherwise I am rather Bet/Folding the river, we just don't beat anything with he is shoving. I don't expect him to do that there with weaker Ax.

      Best regards.
