      villain is a total unknown, second hand in the session on an anon table. doesn't have rebuy on, so i'm assuming not a solid player.

      on the flop betting is standard, i should have bet €2.80 or so. my thinking was that his flop continuing range will be relatively narrow meaning random floats and Kx, sometimes he'll have a FD but i hold A :spade: so possibly a bit less likely.

      turn isn't the nicest card but i still have to value bet because he can still call with Kx. i didn't see the point in betting so large on the turn but maybe i should have bet ~€6?

      my main issue with this hand is how i should approach the river. if i 3barrel he might fold Kx and continue only with the top of his range. but at the same time i can't be sure so i just value bet anyway. would this be a terrible spot to check/call?
