      Villian
      57/0 po 28 handach
      fold to cbet 0/1
      AFq 6/24

      Only 28 hands on villian, but he looks very passive, maybe CS. No read about overplay top pair so i think i should play b/f flop?
      On turn i don't see value in raising since i don't have info that he x/r top pair on flop.
      On river as he check to me i'm thinking about thin vbet as he propably should bet better hand. Now i think that i should checkback and make a note what he x/r on flop.
      How do you play this hand?

      he only minraise on flop, this makes it very hard to fold. I think it is probably exploitable if you fold AJ to minraises. The turn, he only bet 1 dollar, and we don't know whether our hand is better, so we should call. On the river, the only hand he beats you is probably AQ. If he had 2 pair or set, he probably should bet half pot on turn and get you all in on river.

      I would raise turn. Sometimes he might be trapping, but more often I think he is going for pot control with Ax, maybe Kx.
      As played, definitely bet river, I would bet bigger even.

      @liguolong: don't think it matters if our play is exploitable. Fish will never exploit this.

      I´d raise turn to 8$ and shove river. I think he has there most of the times weak Ax hand and he would call you down
