      Poker Stars, $0.10/$0.25 No Limit Hold'em Cash, 6 Players

      BTN: $26.48 (105.9 bb)
      SB: $28.50 (114 bb)
      BB: $95.73 (382.9 bb)
      UTG: $26.33 (105.3 bb)
      Hero (MP): $25 (100 bb) 18/18/8.0/10.0/20/35
      CO: $45.18 (180.7 bb) 51/16/2.9/2.4/37/126

      Preflop: Hero is MP with A T
      UTG folds, Hero raises to $0.75, CO calls $0.75, 3 folds

      Flop: ($1.85) T J A (2 players)
      Hero bets $1.25, CO calls $1.25

      Should the flop bet be bigger say $1.5?

      Turn: ($4.35) 3 (2 players)
      Hero bets $3.25, CO raises to $6.50, Hero raises to $23 and is all-in, CO calls $16.50

      I expect him to raise with a lot of draws and Ax combos since he is quite aggressive, anway I decide to protect and shove.

      River: ($50.35) 6 (2 players, 1 is all-in)

      Hi,

      If you were against 18/18 player I think turn might be even b/f, since players would not really raise there worse hands for value.
      Against 51/16 shove is fine, since I think he may do that sometimes just with Ax hands, sometimes JT or some other strange hands. Although since it is kind of way ahead/way behind you can always call and then c/c river. This way you don´t loose all of your stack if you´re against KQ.

      best regards,

      But don't you think I need to protect my hand on the turn?

      Hi,

      Unless he is raising smt like AQ or AK you really are quite ahead. He needs to have smt like QJ that you should shove to protect your hand. If he has weaker Ax hand he would be drawing dead and if he is making some kind of move then I would rather give him rope to hang himself.

      Best regards,
