      PRE: vilain 32% steal 60%ft3b call or resteal?

      FLOP: decided to lead, to take initiative, he has alot of weaker Kx in his range. Wasnt sure what to do vs his raise... he has ben pretty agrro and seen him raise flops before.

      TURN: think we have the best hand when he checks back.

      RIVER: think he was probably bluffing the flop with an Ax hand A:sX. his bet sizing is screaming for a call...... I called knowing i was beat but wanted to see what hes raising the flop with.

      He had A9o, how would i use this note for future hands?

      Hi.

      I think you played it fine. Look at his overall CR %. If he's checkraising such a hand, then I think he is going to c/r a ton of air on random flops. So I would adjust by 3betting him as a bluff on the flop sometimes, cbetting flops less frequently (especially with Ace highs and smaller pairs), and just calling down with some 2nd pair type of hands. Like if I had QQ on this particular flop, I would play it like KQ and just bet/call the Flop and call the Turn.

      Hand reading on the river: with this bet sizing, is it super obvious he has an Ace and is going for thin value?

      Yea I guess you could say that. A fold could be good.
      He def has some AsXs or A5 in his c/r range.

      I do think the read you obtained was worth the price though. Provided you know how to exploit it.

      Isn't villain raising vs a donkbet as opposed to check/raising?

      oh yes you are right.

      I don't like the flop donk then. Just c/c and take it from there. Do you think you have 3 streets of value vs worse Kings? Did you plan on how to react vs a raise?

      Now that I realized that you donkbetted, I'm really not surprised that he bluff raised A9o. I think at these limits people either fold too much or raise too much (as opposed to calling in position).

      Even if you wanted to go for 3 streets (which I don't necessarily agree with unless you know he plays every single KX hand in his range), then it's better to just c/c F and lead T
