      Villain is unknown as this was one of the first hands at the table, so I have no idea what he is doing. Nice hand or...?

      I think shipping turn would be a good alternative, but I can't tell what would be the best play here.

      I would 3bet bigger for sure vs min raise. 3.75$ minimum.

      I don't think shipping turn would be good, we would be in bad shape vs his calling range.

      I think nice hand.

      Hey Burek2000,

      I think this hand is pretty well played.

      Pre flop I think that we shouldn't deviate our sizing from our normal sizing if he is a regular, meaning 3x is going to be fine. This makes our 3bet bluffs cheaper, if he is remotely good at hand reading he will soon realise that 4x = value, 3x = bluff.

      On the flop raising would be really bad. If we raise flop and he continues we would definitely be behind his range that would consist of 2 pairs and straights.

      On the river I would fold, he likely has a king in his range, kj,kq,k10 and we have the Ah meaning he isn't donking the flush draw.

      Very well played sir.
