      Nice preflop and flop.Imho you should build bigger pot on turn like 2/3 pot size bet and 2/3 pot size bet on river or all in.It depends on your opp,think what sum he can pay you off.Strange but many of low limits guys paying 2/3 pot size bet even seeing that you are pot committed but not paying push.You can put him AJ,rarely AQ.Unlikely AA because he can limp but he would be more active in betting.If your opp is very aggressive especially on river you can check river hoping his big bet and raise or call after.
      Good luck :)

      If you see him as a calling station, you should bet more on the flop, turn and river.
      Your only goal is to be all-in on the river.


      Unlikely AA because he can limp but he would be more active in betting.
      That would be cheating, since we already have 3 aces.

      Hello Gerv,

      I normally follow the nice, plain rule on lower limits with nuts:

      flop: pot / push
      turn: pot / push
      river pot so maybe finally push

      It's so easy and profitable. Try using it, I guarantee you'll do well.

      About the pot size bet: I know the basic articles say 2/3, but they are related to cbet situation. In unraised pot just bet pot.

      Also, try not posting results (at least at the beginning) since you can get biased evaluation. You can add them later by editing your posts if you think they're interesting.

      edit: Oh, and maybe you did? If yes, don't pay attention to my comments ;) just a hit for future posts.
