      I bet the flop and turn for value, he could also be on draws or some PP, I kept my sizing smaller to keep those hands in and not get called only by stronger Ax hands on the turn...

      On river I decide to check and see showdown, was a bit surprised with his pot size bet on the river but given the hand I had I had to call this, if I loose to stronger Ax here thats ok I guess, lots of missed draws could have done this too

      I like your smaller sizing to get called by not just Ax but also some draws and middling pairs.

      On the river I think we can check call, while sometimes we lose to better Ax I think we can see missed draws often enough to be profitable.

      Well played.
