      I didn't have many stats on that player yet. Only a few hands already I think.

      I checked for pot control. Though a pair of Aces is good, when he called the flop I thought he could have a lot of hands that are still stronger than me. Recently I've played lots of hands that are not 'strong hands' like one pair and when I keep betting strong I lose big pots... I've adjusted by trying to pot control when my hand isn't great.

      Hello PhoenixPhreak,

      Bet the turn also for value + protection and avoid him betting huge time on the river which might be difficult to call-down.

      Best Regards.
