      Alright, given their inabillity to fold against 3bets my AJo is obviously a value bet.

      I C-bet (given the dry board, I don't see any reason to make it bigger as we will be all-in by river, on the other hand if I were to make it 5.5 I'd be able to ship it turn easily instead) So perhaps 5.5 would've been better?

      When btn ships, I know it's a profitable call, he's aggressive with a very wide range that I am without a doubt ahead of.

      Same thing applies with CO, but rather than just call, and let him have a free card I think it's probably best to get it in as I don't think he'll fold any ace (knowing he has a lot aces in his range - most likely all aces)

      so this should no doubt be a +EV, some people might say it looks thin but I don't think it is thin at all.

      Usually I probably wouldn't even have this hand analyzed as it feel so clearly +EV and I think I couldn't have played it much better (that's for you to decide)

      but lately my confidence has been low due to losing a lot so I figured it'd be best to have a few hands checked, including this one.
