      His CBet isnt that weak but kinda standard: 1/2 PSB in 3bet pot/paired board.
      I still like your play as he will fold all PP, Kx and only continues Ax hands.
      No real need to balance on NL10, but if you were holding Ax you should raise way bigger ;)

      Hello w4terman,

      Well, you could also just consider Calling the flop. Since if he doesn't have the Ax he is most likely anyways giving it up on turn. :) But your line is obviously considerable as well with your expectations on his bet size. On turn he might still level himself to Call with some PPs.

      Only bad case with such a play is that we have to fold if we decides to 3bet. :) While with Calling we might still hit and get paid.

      Best Regards.
