      Hi Rihard,

      PReflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Considering how short villain is I don't mind betting small on flop/turn and then possibly going with the hand.

      However if I take the bet/bet line I'd bet 1/2 pot (or less) to keep his range really wide and induce a light raise/call.

      If we bet bigger here I would prefer to ck/call turn to let him take a stab with his bluffs. When we bet as much as we did his bluffs can no longer raise us.
