      Hello,

      Preflop your play is good.

      I think raising the flop is fine here. He might overplay even Ax considering that he is likely to have a gutshot plus overcards (or a pair), and overpair is never folding.
      I would rather make it bigger though - around $1.4.

      Best,

      Hi.

      Our hand is definitely pretty "invulnerable". I am not scared of any card in the deck falling on the Turn, including the pairing cards, because I just do not put him on low pocketpairs min-3betting the Flop too often.

      So main question is whether the value of slowplaying outweighs the value of raising to build the pot. If we call the Flop 40cent bet, pot will have almost 2 on the Turn. We can pot Turn and pot River if he checks, so we get in another 6$ along with the $1 on the Flop and Preflop. That's almost his entire stack (remember that he's slightly short, he only has 83BB).

      So I'm inclined to believe that slowplaying makes way more sense here. Besides, if we hit a 5 on the Turn or River, we can expect to always get paid off by AX which should technically be a huge part of his preflop range.

      Therefore, call Flop > raise Flop.

      Thanks.
