      CO: $20 (100 bb)
      BTN: $21.80 (109 bb)
      SB: $20 (100 bb)
      Hero (BB): $20 (100 bb)
      UTG: $20.70 (103.5 bb)
      MP: $24.13 (120.7 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is BB with A Q
      UTG raises to $0.70, MP calls $0.70, 3 folds, Hero calls $0.50

      Flop: ($2.20) 5 J A (3 players)
      Hero bets $1.80, UTG folds, MP calls $1.80

      Turn: ($5.80) 6 (2 players)
      Hero bets $4, MP calls $4

      River: ($13.80) 7 (2 players)
      Hero bets $5, MP calls $5

      Villain is a weak player, 35/9 in 57h

      I take initiative on the flop because I do not think reg will cBet bluff often / I want to protect, get value from Fish

      What do u think about my bet bet bet line and my sizing?
      I am trying to get value from weak Ax, I am folding to aggression due to the board.

      Pre flop - I think it's better to 3bet and take the initiative and play heads up against mp.

      Flop and turn - I like the donk bets for value against fish he could call flush draws or more often Ax Broadway and Jx.

      River - I think we still have value here against Ax but some Ax made 2p and he could have a flush here too. I still think we should bet slightly bigger like 6.5 not that I think we have alot value but rather to prevent inducing a raise from worse hands like Ax that's not 2p and missed Broadway.
