      Hey maritsula,

      Preflop: Why are we slowplaying AA here versus a complete unknown?

      I would 4-bet and look to get as much value as possible.

      Postflop: Since we called the flop why are we not raising at any point? Why not raise the flop or any of the streets?

      By not 4-betting preflop we are losing value versus a lot of hands and by not raising postflop we lose value from all the overpairs he can have there.

      I completely agree with you

      Just wanted to see if this line makes any sense. I need some history on villain, a lot actually, to take this line i guess
