      Hi HingPoker,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: For one, he got lucky and that sucks for us.

      However I think we can play around with the betsizes a bit so we gain more value.

      I'd make it 1.2 on the flop and bet at least 2/3 on the turn for pure value versus his Kx hands and so on.

      There's no way for us to really put him on AJ there so river bet/call is fine but I'd bet bigger as well.

      raise to 1.2 on flop, 2/3 turn and then you can comfortably ship river

      if his flop and turn cbet are high you can also try to c/c flop and c/r turn to extract more value from his double-barrel hands which he might fold to a flop raise
