      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has A:heart: A:spade:

      River: (203.5 BB, 2 players) T:club:

      Hero mucks A:heart: A:spade: (Two Pair, Aces and Nines) (Pre 80%, Flop 81%, Turn 91%)
      MP shows Q:diamond: J:diamond: (Straight, King High) (Pre 20%, Flop 19%, Turn 9%)
      MP wins 197.5 BB

      Should I raise 4bet larger? I am ok if he calls with any hand, especially if he is fishy, and seems I dont have hands on him, he is probably considering also his 3bet raise size.

      Is size on flop and turn ok? I am looking to have 3 streets, and bet larger each street to get light calls by TT, -QQ, or induce bluffs. On very drawy board I would bet bigger flop and shove turn. Is it ok general plan?

      Preflop: I think your 4bet size is fine, especially when you have AA and are virtually unafraid of any flop. If you had a better read on his tendencies of being a massive fish station and not folding to reraises, then I would 4bet larger just to maximise my value.

      PostFlop: I think your size is generally fine. The small bets tend to make fishes make huge mistakes (they either spazz vs them, or they call turn and find themselves committed on river - They don't plan ahead for future streets which is great for us)
