      How to extract max with AA?
      Could I have made 1/2 pot raise here to not scare villain off?
      If he had made trips he would call any raise and possibly reraise which would have put me in unpleasent situation - is it just xJ he has or really set?

      Could I afford 1/2 bet if he's holding KQ? Such loose players tend to call even 3/4 bets with OESD.

      Over all I think 2/3 bet was absolute minimum.

      Hey Malcolm,

      Your betsizing is fine :) I wouldn't go lower than 2/3 pot because if he calls your bet, he would certainly have called a bigger bet (like for instance 2/3)

      If he raises you, I would be still inclined to call because he can still overplay his Jx here
      Best regards,
