      I am not completely sure my line was correct here especially i am not sure about River. What are your thoughts? Of course my line here was b/f.

      You are turning AA into a bluff here on the river. It's unlikely he's going to call with worse, and he may even fold better, like 2-pair etc given that there is a 4 to straight out there.

      Betting the turn may be ok to get calls from stubborn Tx, overpairs, Jx (straight-draw), and any turned FDs, but by the river you either need to be betting a LOT smaller or checking and hoping your opponent bluffs with something like KJ.

      If opponent is very passive and bets you can consider c/f river.

      Preflop raising is fine.

      Your flop bet is fine.

      Turn card is rather bad but I think we could bet again but I would make it smaller - $1.3-$1.4 since I don't really think that most of the hands would love calling here.

      On the river I prefer check/folding against unknown since I'm not sure if he calls here with worse.

      what about b/f 1/3 on the river? I don`t think villain would try to bluff us anyway, after 3 barrels. And we could get called by worse - Tx, JJ

      Well 1/3 bet is an option, but still the board is quite heavy and I just prefer to check/fold.
