      Pre call is fine. It wouldnt make much sense to bluff 3bet against SB, who calls a lot, but the hand plays well postflop in position, so calling is okay.

      I really dont like flop raise. Value and protection are wrong ideas here. You are gaining no value, as he would definitely not call the raise with worse hands, but you turn your TP into bluff instead, and it's really doubtful that he would fold better hands (f.e. overpairs) to a raise.
      Calling flop would be fine, you have a good hand, and you'd keep his range wide this way.

      What was the purpose of your turn bet? Actually you are continuing your bluff, which would be fine, as the Ace is a scarecard for his pocketpairs, but on the other hand the only way for you to have an Ace, if you bluffraised flop with Ax hands... Sizing is also very small, if you decide to bluff, bet at least 2/3 pot.

      As played, on the river I'd also give up, and lose at showdown...

      Hello mcfly10,

      Flop: As said above you can't really raise for value cause you most likely making worse to fold and mainly better ones continue. Or do you assume him capable of calling you with Ace high vs you? :P

      As played
      Turn: As if we turned our hand into bluff then should also Bet the turn bigger to gain the fold equity not make our hand look weak.

      As played
      River: Not much to comment.

      Best Regards.
