      Hello,

      As I don't expect his limp/call preflop range from the button to have a lot of Ax hands, I would bet here on the turn to gain value from his weaker hands/draws.

      Best,
      Plamen

      How much would you bet? 18-20$, 60-65%? How can we determine optimal sizing here?
      And what's the plan for the river? C\f for bet >= 1\2 pot?

      I would bet around $18 bucks here as this is the type of sizing that I think that hands like 8x/Tx/draws might be inclined to call. If we bet too big we might just isolate ourselves against better.

      On the river on a blank I would plan to check/call there as I don't think he's going to value bet Ax and he's only going to bet strong hands (such as two pair which are likely to be raised earlier) and busted draws.
