      I think that betting turn is fine, but I´d just c/f the river because if he is not blind he has to know that every Ace made a straight and what do you think he is gonna call you with ? :)

      Hello lukezo,

      Preflop: Basically on those limits I'd rather raise 4xBB.
      Postflop: Yes, likely just Bet/Fold the turn while any Ax now even makes a straight and which is very likely them to float with on flop. And river rather Check/Fold, the problem is that there aren't that many worse hands which Call us anyways and we don't know the opponent either to decide either the thin value is fine or not.

      Best regards.
