      Hey Lunitis,

      Preflop is fine.

      Flop/turn bets are fine.

      River bet.....what worse hands are callling? I guess stuff like A:c5, Qx. Are they calling 3/4s pot? I doubt it. A improves your hand but it's not a great card for opponents range. Usually he now has a weak Ace, Qx, or a busted draw. (Sometimes A3/A9 though which might call larger.)The rest of the time he has you beat with slowplays, so maybe I'd bet smaller on river.

      Given his AF I guess this is a bet/fold river.

      He is donkey, will have all the A :club: X, i dont think he will ever fold an Ax there. I know that with this size he wont call with Qx, but if i make it too small for him to call with Qx i will miss too much value from Ax, so it wont compensates imo.
      How much would you bet? 2/3?

      Your sizing is fine if you think he will call with Ax.

      Personally I would bet like $8 to make sure Ax call maybe Qx etc. Value bet kinda sucks if he folds all Ax.
