      Anon. table. => no HUD

      I think i can bet the turn for value as i will often barrel the A. I guess ch/c is also fine. Which is better in these positions?

      After he raised, i think that calling is best.

      River is a fold without info?

      I think after opening MP and barreling that turn you rep Ax way too much. You basically over-rep your made hand (although you ofc have enough equity with a redraw). That means it's hard to get called by a worse made hand apart from Qx with clubs. This would change if you had opened in BU and got a call from BB for example.

      I would opt to check the turn. I don't barrel 100% of A on turn in that spot and this is a good hand to check/call after cbetting.

      I don't think any way is wrong, simply a matter of what range you should include this hand in: betting or check/calling, maybe check/raise if you know some tendencies..
