      Hi, this pot I played with guy who had 13/13 after 8 hands and he played this table and two tournaments.
      He couldnt have many hands that will call, when I have top two, so I tried to induce bluffs.
      If this was mistake he did let me fix it with this small bet.
      I raised and just bet, bet.
      On river I had 37 to pot 26, do you think its better to shove this river? Im aiming to Ax and if he is a fish, he would probably not fold it very often.
      But I wanted to make sure I'll get call and bet 16.

      Hi Sand,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Given the lack of information on villain I would just go with bet/bet/bet there for pure value (appears fishy given stack and tables that he plays).

      As played I would ck/raise flop larger so we can set up for a big turn bet and river shove. We are mostly targeting Ax and draws.
