      Hello DrDunne,

      Preflop: What's his 3bet here? I might even just 4bet and get it in. On those stakes they are willing to play for the stacks very loosely. No need to trap.

      As played
      Postflop: Well, seems to be fine. Although I guess I'd just raise myself on the flop and play for the stacks. If he doesn't have a hand then most likely he wont pay much anyways. But of course rather do ship earlier preflop where might even something like AQ/AK will pay. Otherwise seems to be fine if didn't raise it.

      Best Regards.
