      Hey, I opened A4s HJ because of onetabling fish 60/0 after 5 hands (if he was like 60bb I probably wouldnt open cause implied odds are lower and he has every better aces), besides regs to my left are fit or fold, so I would open here suited aces, somethigh like 78s+, T8s+, 22+ and all broadways, what do you think?
      On flop I made cbet to take the pot down, maybe it was not for value but on such dry board and with blockers its profitable for sure. Besides Im protecting my hand here against like 5Q.
      On turn I think most of his range is Kx, 7x, 4x and pocket pairs and probably most Ax. So I decided to check/fold cause most of his range is better and I dont really need to protect against Ax which is most likely checking back anyway.
      On the river I dont think I should bluffcatch, cause he doesnt have many draws and most of his non-made hands that called flop are Ax which is chcecking back river most likely.
      So I did check/fold assuming hes betting hands like 88, K2, 7Q, 33.

      I think your play is fine, I would expect him to bet Kx on the turn though. He could check back some weaker Kx like K9 and bet a middle pair for value on river like QQ JJ so I don't mind the fold on the river.
