      Preflop it's tough. Have to add 6 bb to set mining. Can I call ? Should I fold ? Is sample size not enough ?

      On flop , I decide to just slowplay. But should I C/R ? If he has AK , he just bet / fold. If he have overpair, he just bet / broke. If is has air, he just bet / fold.

      If I check / call vs Air, he can make some runner runner. If I check / call vs AK, I can't get value unless he hit.

      On the river, I decide to shove in case he tried to pot control with overpair.

      I disagree with your river play. If he had an overpair, I don't think he pot controls at all. The board isn't ugly.

      Even if he pot controls, I expect him to bet the River so you should c/r the River instead.
