      preflop
      stats depends. A2s has a bluff value so if villain fold to raise or call and fold to CB often, I'll raise.

      flop
      A2 has some value but against his real hand you are far behind so check/raise /fold seems better than check/call flop, check/call turn.

      I do not like preflop as I prefer to raise it preflop to be heads up and win a bigger pot by bluffing someone out.

      Now the Flop & Turn are standard , if you do not have a flushdraw on the Turn then you have to fold there due lack of equity. The River is a snapfold because TPNK is as bad as having Midpair Topkicker

      Best regards,
