      Hi there. I am wondering, is there any other way to play this hand so that I lose less money?
      Fish opens, I sqz I guess it's standard. When the Ace from space comes on the flop, OOP, I find it's best to cBet since if he doesn't have an Ace he is folding and if I check to him I put myself in a difficult spot if he bets.
      When he calls, I am check folding the turn.

      that would be very standard play. Other options would be to c/c flop and turn to let him bluff with worse hands and play way ahead/way behind. Also I would play against some opponents c-bet flop and then c/c turn

      best regards,
