      56 hands VpiP 26, PFR 10.

      preflop: I would usually raise 5BB, but I didnt see him limping (playing multitable).

      I think raise turn is ok, because he could have fd, but river? He could easily have Ax weak, so he wants to get cheap to showdown. On river after I raised, it would be hard decision wheater to fold or not, because he looks fishy, and sometimes they push with trips weak Ax. But mostly I would fold.

      Hey mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine (minus the misclick raise size).

      Postflop: You can even bet the flop larger since on this board his calling range is not really affected by bet size.

      Why not raise turn bigger so we have a more comfortable AI on the river?

      As played, since we don't fold to a shove and he can easily call any Ax or even Kx why not shove? That would be my preferred line.
