      Very thin value bet.

      What range did you put the villain on and what are your reads on him? Your line was very read dependent and will often times be a bluff against most opponents.

      Pre - I'd like to understand why you raised OOP with a weak ace? I will fold here or maybe consider completing. But if ever I decide to raise here, I would make it 0.14(4BB+1BB per limper+1BB since you are OOP post flop) to go.

      Flop - As played, I like the cbet as it represents you liked the board and you could easily have AK/AQ given the preflop play.

      Turn: I would fire another bullet here for protection as villain might be drawing to a flush.

      River: I would consider check/folding a reasonable bet amount. We are often times in a kicker problem with our pair. I cant imagine what else we can beat with our Top Pair / No Kicker. No reason to bet since missed draws would not call and we are often times beat with villain's showdown range. You were lucky to have a fish in with you :)

      I am sitting on these tables with HUD stats.

      His pre-flop limping range is 55% & his WTS when seen flop is 50%.

      Agree with your points, but to defend myself the river bet was based on the assumption he would be calling far too wide.

      Hello Philfox1985,

      Preflop: Not a huge fan of isolating those baby-aces either. Rather just complete for the 1 cent and play it postflop.

      As played
      Postflop: I'd still Bet/Fold the turn for protection from any kind of draws and maybe even value from weaker pairs.

      Best regards.
