      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has A:diamond: A:club:

      UTG raises to 2 BB, fold, Hero raises to 7 BB, fold, fold, BB calls 6 BB, fold

      Flop: (16.4 BB, 2 players) A:spade: 4:diamond: 5:spade:

      BB checks, Hero bets 9 BB, BB calls 9 BB

      River: (74.4 BB, 2 players) Q:heart:
      BB bets 32 BB, Hero raises to 102.92 BB and is all-in, fold

      Hero wins 131.48 BB

      BB 91 hand, VPiP 19 PFR 10, fold to 3bet 33

      Is my cbet size ok? I know I should bet larger when we are deep, but I dont see how can he call here. He calls 3bet cold mostly with PP JJ, TT,QQ, I dont think with suited connectors. AK very unlikely, but if he has it or set we end up all in anyway.

      Should I reraise flop? Or let him bluff?

      Turn: I thought he is giving up so wanted to provoce him again.

      You posted the hand in the wrong forum. I asked for someone to move it, but unfortunately there it isn't moved yet, so I would leave here my opinion of the hand.

      Against minraises I usually 3bet 4x preflop.

      I like your cbet sizing here.
      When he raises I think calling is fine. We block a lot and I think if he has an Ax the money would go in anyways.
      I think calling and letting him bluff is fine.

      As played, I would probably shove the turn here. I doubt that if he has JT for example he is going to raise, but by shoving we take maximum value from his draws.
