      Hi Urmo,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given villains stack size we should look at sizing our bets such that we can shove the river comfortably (without overbet). As played both flop and turn look fine and once you bet small on the river (like an inducer bet) we can't really fold.

      What range did you give villain? Why not just put him all in so you don't lose value from Ax that just calls?
