      Hi ramadas,

      Preflop: Since he gives us decent odds to call for FD/straight/2p+ we can call here.

      Flop: I don't like our donk/fold. What's the purpose?

      I prefer to check and play from there. Villain can take a stab with his bluffs or check back. Either way we can continue the hand.

      My purpose was to probe where I am in the hand.... no good?

      He was easily doing this with KK, JJ, ...or any other hand he raised you with.
      If you dont stack here I don`t know why did you even bet the flop. If you have an ace in your hand and there are two more aces on the flop it makes it such less likely that he has and ace. The only hand I would be worryed about is QQ.

      So, betting really small on this board would let you know where you are?

      Aren't we looking somewhat weak/afraid with the bet? If he raises can we expect him to always do it for value when he is unknown?

      Our bet does not, unfortunately, tell us where we are in the hand at all.
