      Just lost one hand a very similar way :)

      Flop can be raised for 0.20 more, turn is ok if he is a big fish you can size it bigger.

      River should be a bet/fold targeting his aces we could even bet close to half pot.

      Frankly there is not many card are legit to play this with 8c9c would be the would but that one should go broke on flop, tcxc is another. It is possible that he got overeager with ak, and ac and kc is on the board.

      Usually you should let this one go, because villains don't make a habit of making sense.

      Hello,

      Preflop is fine.

      I like check/raising the flop and we can make it 2-3 bb more here.

      On the turn your bet is good.

      I think we can bet a little bit more on the river - like $3-$3.5 and I'm always folding when he raises.
      I doubt he'd end up having a worse hand here when he raises.

      Best,
      Plamen

      I got lucky this time and villain showed AQo. It's clear he used river flush card as a scare card. How should I recognize similar very aggressive opponents? High AF, 1-tabling bronze status (eg fish) or purely on notes?

      Well, you can't really tell that he's going to turn a made hand into a bluff with any statistics - you have to use your reads and notes in order to do this.
