      UTG: 69/15/2.59/29/144 [VPIP/PFR/AF/WTS/# hands]

      Looking back at this hand, my line seems weird to me. I don't know why I bluff vs 3 players and then I also think I should have bet higher (2/3 pot) on T for value. On river I bet small because I think either I am beaten by full house or he has a weak hand like Jx or even Tx that won't call more than that. But then I call river because he can still have some non-full-house Jx combos.

      Hi.

      Preflop: Very standard raise here. This guy is such a huge whale, that we want to isolate him from the other players. And A4s is doing really well vs a 65% VPIP range.

      Flop: I think raising is fine. I would barrel most turn cards.

      Turn: I am not sure why you are betting so small now. We hit, we are up against a fish, and the Turn card greatly improved the fish's calling range. He rarely folds JX here, he has some straights (AQ, Q9), some worse flushes, and some KX hands (AK, KQ). This is a very easy pot bet on the Turn.

      River: Assuming I did build up the pot on the Turn I would just jam the River here. This bad player never folds JX here, and he has way more combos of trips and worse flushes as compared to full houses. I think your concerns about him having the full house really often are unfounded.
