      Villain is 34/19 over 32 hands, but I can't remember what they were when the hand was played, I don't think they looked so bad at the time.

      My query is raise sizing with us being so deep. I can understand that his donks look like weak blocking bets, but I wasn't sure in game that trying to get him to stack 180bb was best given his likely weak range.

      Do you think I played to weakly given villain is a fish, or was deciding to not blow him off his weak hands better. I know i miss value when he has AQ and KQ but given the hand he showed up with surely that's a super small part of his range.

      I would bet larger for sure. You don't have to stack him, but you could certainly try to go for more value.

      Flop: Raise to 3.50
      Turn: Pot will be 11, I'll bet 9.80
      River: Pot will be 31, I would bet 28.

      Just bet close to pot and I would expect him to pay us off with any ace a lot of the time.
