      Villain is tight agressive, so re-raise with AJo here was mystery. Good flop for me, half-pot raise and he just flat calls. On turn half-pot from me and he re-raises??? Pocket aces were not on his range, so clear call from me. But I'm thinking about my move on river. Was it right, or I should've raise here at first?

      Hey MrgRa,

      Preflop call vs 3bet is borderline MP vs CO. If you do continue flatting is the best option.

      I don't see a good reason to donk the flop, it looks very strong. Usually the best option will be to let villain cbet. If you do decide to bet there is no reason to bet so small.

      Standard play at these limits is to fold turn vs a raise. Baluga theorem says you are beat more often than not. If you were going to bet the turn here (you would normally be checking here if you check/called the flop) then you should pick a larger sizing after villain has called the flop.

      After you've called turn raise you shouldn't fold river.
