      I think ch/r turn is better vs. this guy? He is aggresive and he will most likely bet all his draws and TP hands and won`t fold them to a raise. Size?

      On the river, i think shove is better than ch/c, because he should have more Ax than draws and he might check behind Ax?

      Turn: I like the turn c/r more if you are deeper and you want to go for max value. When he's shorter I prefer to keep on betting to deny him the chance to take pot control lines at any point in time.

      If you bet 8, pot will have 25 on the river and you can bet 21$ to shove the River.

      If you were 100bb deep then I think the check/raise line makes more sense if you think he's floating you wide and will bluff on the Turn with all those floats and draws.

      River: Well the main thing about the CR is that
      A. you want to maximize value vs AX
      B. You want to induce some turn bluffs

      I think reason A > reason B, so shove River > c/c River.
