      Preflop I bet UTG due to hand strength but more so because I look strong.

      On the flop I make a standard bet and get raised small. This screams weak too me, Ace highs and or medium pockets and weaker queens. I flat because 1)my overall hand strength isn't huge, and the odd case that this person is playing the bottom sets like this I dont feel I can get it in at this point. 2) I want to keep his weak hands in.

      Turn is basically a blank and changes nothing. I call the 2/3 bet.

      River is interesting. I always thought there could be missed aces in his range. I check back because I dont believe I can rep a 6 at all and so only better calls.

      Hello Verre,

      Bet the flop bigger but afterwards not much to comment. With specific dynamics we might even just 3bet the flop and get it in cause he is representing a narrow range there.

      Best Regards.
