      I know what you're going to say:
      Bet turn bigger. Pot size? Overbet?

      I can't believe he checked the river.
      Very unusual play.

      firstly, u hit goldmine on flop, so bet bigger flop also, so much value from worse Ax, Jx, FD, gutshots etc. My standard sizing on turn is ~3.25$. I dont really like chbeh river, we have valuebet here all day long vs this guy, there is more combination of Ax than flushes and Jx, bet something like 3$ if u think he wouldnt call bigger bet with Ax, but definitely bet.

      I agree that you should bet bigger on the flop and turn and valuebet river. Offcoures it's an easy bet/fold.

      Hello VorpalF2F,

      Definitely Bet it bigger on the flop & turn, especially vs such a fish, no way to play it otherwise. Though on the river we can still Bet/Fold it as well vs weaker Ax hands.

      Best Regards.
