      Given his aggressive pre-flop stats and SB vs BB I was planning to get it in Pre-flop if he 4 bets me.

      On the flop I was torn between raising and calling, but felt like the odds he gives me to draw make it the easiest and probably best option.

      Hitting the ace on the turn, I felt like I'm probably ahead of his hand, and still have the nut flush draw so raised for value.

      On the river I raised again for value. It felt a bit thin, but as the opponent has a wide calling it seemed a good idea. Only issue was that I wasn't raising big enough relative to the pot - thats the biggest point I noted, I missed a little value I think.

      Preflop 3betting is good.

      On the flop with two overcards and nut flush draw I think the best is to raise and go broke.

      As played, raising the turn is definitely good and you can make it bigger - like $1.6.

      Raising the river is fine as well and I like your sizing.
