      I think preflop is ok for this price.

      I think i can bet the flop and the turn for value.

      On the river? I`m not sure if he will take this line with draws and he can have a lot of Kx hands.

      I think preflop is OK, I agree with you. Postflop, what do you think you can get value from? I think it's a clear check and play turn and river IP. Your hand is not that great and you also need some hands to check back that protect you from checking back to always fold turn in such a spot. Your opponent can definitely still have AA, KK, AK imo.. he won't get much value on that board by cbetting plus given the weird 3bet sizing he will definitely not have just that in his range. He will be quite random so you can think about playing your range here.

      If you had AQ it would be an easy vbet but with A4 you probably value own yourself too often.
