      CO: $59.45 (118.9 bb)
      Hero (BTN): $50 (100 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BTN with A A
      MP folds, CO raises to $1, Hero raises to $4.75, 2 folds, CO calls $3.75

      Flop: ($10.25) K J Q (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $5, CO calls $5

      Turn: ($20.25) 4 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $9.75, CO calls $9.75

      River: ($39.75) 6 (2 players)
      CO checks, Hero bets $30.50 and is all-in, CO folds

      Anon table.

      CO was a fish on small sample.

      Flop/turn bets should be bigger? What would you play on the river? KQJ is not the best board for aces, but I cant really bet/fold, and felt checkback weak and losing value, so I chose to make a thin valuepush against the fish.

      While I usually pot control flop with AA vs a reg, vs the fish I would just bet bet bet. The flop and turn bets could be considered kind of thin, but after he calls twice without raising, I think we should heavily discount KQ KJ QJ AT from his range to a great extent and hope he has KT AQ K9 AK which can call us 3 streets.
