      BU was 35/15/3 over 80.

      3bet for value. When he 4bets smallish I spazzed thinking he could be bluffing.
      However, there is no evidence to suggest he is bluffing. His 3bet stat is really small so he never 4bet bluffs here.
      So it should be a fold to a 4bet.

      Continue to spazz. However, I think that my spzz cbet is fine to fold out his bluffs if he was actually bluffing.

      Planned to c/call. Really messed up this hand.

      I thought I was making a thin value bet vs QQ/JJ. Not sure if I should c/f or c/c in this spot.

      Preflop: I think this is overplay. Don't 5bet a hand as weak as AQs when you are 250bb deep. I would just call the 4bet and play some postflop - AQs plays fairly well actually.

      Actually folding might even be best - Fishes don't 4bet too often and they only do it with strong hands most of the time.

      Flop: The bet here is fine

      Turn: While I might bet the Turn really often, I think that you may lose to KK/AK which could very well be in villain's 4bet/call range so the check is fine. Vs a better player I would always bet here cos checking with an Ace and betting with air is highly exploitable but this guy seems to be a fish.

      River: Now you probably have the best hand and a King is not folding anymore when the Ace pairs. You are losing value by betting so small. I'm shoving here. You are trying to gain value from worse AX and KQ/KJ type of hands. Check/call doesn't make too much sense - Villain doesn't have too many floats/busted draws and he would mostly bet himself with stronger hands like AK/KK
