      Opponent stats 64/12 AF:3,2 WTSD:25 W$SD:0 after 25 hands.

      I bet on the flop, because I think I can get calls from Jx, KQ hands. So that should I do on the turn? Bet around half pot to get call from Jx? Or maybe take another line and c/c two streets and then revaluate the on the river?

      MP2 seems fishy based on the stack size and of course the small sample you have.

      Flop: OOP this is a tough spot because our valuebet is really thin, thus I'd make it even smaller like 1/2 pot.

      That way I'm keeping the pot smaller and I can bet smaller on the turn.

      Turn: Against your average fish we can expect them to check behind a fair amount of one pair hands that are not Ax so I don't actually mind checking to him. However, since he can have so many Ax, QK gets there and so does JT, I think we need to fold to his bet.

      Calling to reevaluate river doesnt make much sense because we are still OOP and we can expect another bet often.
