      Is my check raise turn ok? I expect him to have more often Ax weaker and draws than sets.
      River both fd missed, is my bet size ok, I want him to call light?

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: We can bet 1bb larger on the flop with all of our range on this type of board (especially since we don't know if he is fishy or not).

      As played, since we don't know what villain can call the flop with and what he bets with (if he bets weak Ax for example) I prefer to continue betting myself.

      If we ck/raise there vs his small bet what's our plan versus a 3-bet?

      As played I'd bet river slightly larger at 2/3. His range is either draws that fold/raise or a bluffcatcher that can usually call more.
