      Question 1: With me being OOP with a limper I feel a raise is better than a call to end the pot there or at least have initiative post flop. Good play/bad play?

      Question 2: By the river I really but villain on flushdraw or on a weak Ax. Should I be raising for value or should I be checking to induce a bluff or maybe a perceived value bet by his side?

      1) I would be less inclined to raise OOP. But then again I think AT is ahead of his limping range and we can just raise purely for value.

      2) I think betting is great. Of course my assumptions are that he raises AJ-AK really often, and limp/calls with many worse Aces. Betting becomes even greater if we think he never folds KX.

      I would consider c/c with a weaker Ace. but AT feels too strong to turn into a bluff catcher so I think we should just bet for value.
