      Hi,

      Preflop is a bit marginal.. he doesn't fold too often and your Ace kicker is low, won't count as a pair almost ever but 3betting is doable since we have an idea of his play from stats.

      Flop check/call I like it.. I think it's better than cbetting. On the turn however, you call for a split or worse way too often and I think it's a fold. Notice that you also have a note that says he gives up on barreling when he doesn't improve.. yes, this is a 3bet pot but it still matters a bit given that we are doing quite badly against his usual range already anyway. In short, fold turn, we call to split or worse way too often.
