      pre: stand call IP vs unknown
      flop: stnd
      turn - no need to raise imo
      river - would still call here should he make it like 2/3 max.; more I am likely folding. Is that fine ?

      I don´t think he is able to fold a weaker Ace on the river so I could maybe even make it bigger.

      Hello acceleration123,

      Seems to be totally standard, although I might bet a bit smaller like $1 but it's not a big mistake. He will just have hard time Calling with a lot worse, and he did likely have some draw or semi-bluff and not the Ax.

      Best regards.

      And what about if he bets the river again ? How much would you still call and against what bet are you folding ?

      Then it would be pretty sick, although up to $1 I guess I would Call. If it gets higher then I'd basically rather fold. Then we don't get that great odds anymore.

      Would be sick if he would bet like $1,20. :D Then it would look so like value-bet, just can't imagine him doing that with AT, only reasonable hand might be is like AQ.
