      Is my call flop and turn ok? It looks like he barrels with 2 pairs, or strong Ax, and I wanted to let him 3 barrel and raise river, which he has to call, and there were no draws.

      Hi mlatasrb,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Since villain is betting on the larger side, especially on the turn his range is polarized so I like to call both streets and raise river because there's a good possibility he will fire 3 streets.

      And as you said you are committing him with most of his Ax hands. And since the flop is not that coordinated we are fine not raising. We do give a chance for hands like KQ/QJ/KJ to suckout but those will also have a chance to keep barreling.
