      i thought i could be up against smaller aces was my assumtion correct

      Hey Johny,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Flop: I'd cbet here as well and size is fine.

      Turn: Considering that villain only has 2.9 left we should just put him all in.

      He can have worse Ax like AJ/AQ. He can have FDs like KQdd maybe even OESD like TJ.

      It's true that he folds TT/JJ on the flop but he wouldn't fold Ax.
