      Heyo,

      He can actually take this line with quite a few hands on the flop, not too thrilled about your hand. My thinking is more to turn it into a bluff in the sense that I prefer seeing folds, though when I get called I sometimes have the better hand but not getting value from his whole range. Because of that, I would bet bigger on flop and play turns for more money like I would with any value hand. In your case you might get A high call on flop, A3, 44, maybe 22 and on the turn all of those fold so I don't really like the line to basically value own yourself.

      What better hands, he will fold, if i bet bigger on this turn?

      What do you think about betting smth. like 2$ on the turn for thin value and cheap showdown?

      He actually doesn't fold better hands which is why I much rather not bet... he doesn't call worse either.. I would turn it into a serious bluff and bet/bet/bet on most runouts (very low equity so not recommended imo) or just check it down, maybe bet once to get a call from A high in a spot where pairs would've bet, like the turn and that's all the money the hand puts into the pot.

      Betting smaller just to get a cheaper showdown doesn't do much.. you have the option to check and reach river, his range is not strong anyway, any money you put in is behind anyway..
