      CO stats:

      First of all, I hate weaktight-conversion but pokerstrategy converter wasn't working for me ATM

      I 3-bet him because he opens a lot and calls a lot of 3-bets (A5s type of hands also)

      I bet for value and protection. He is not that aggressive so first question would we ship against a raise? I think I will make a crying fold considering we're more then 100bb effective

      My plan was to bet/fold here. Check/fold seems to weak and I'm not a big fan of bet/calling either. If I got called I would check/fold the river

      I would check/fold here unless the A pops up so I try to valuebet

      1) ship flop against a raise?
      2) bet/fold turn is ok? Or would you prefer another line?

      B/f turn is reasonable, but since you now split all Ax hands and loose to AQ/AK I think checking and giving him option betting himself with draws would be better play. That case I would also c/c half pot bet on the river.
      I think I like more c/rai on the river. He would very likely bet himself his Jx and Ax hands, so you don´t loose value, but that case you also give him chance bet his missed draws. Also if player doesn´t understand the board he may b/f small Ax hand.

      1) ship flop against a raise?
      - I think b/c would be better. Not sure how often you get raised worse hands and if he has smt like KsJx he still has a lot of outs against your hand

      best regards,
