      Villain is 56/22 over 18 hands.

      First of all, I'm not sure about the call pre flop. Sure I have position, but A2 is a pretty marginal hand. A2s I definitely would have called.

      As played, I felt like I couldn't just fold to one cbet with an overcard and a gutshot. He could certainly be betting his air here as well, so there's plenty of room to take this down on the turn.

      I think given how I played pre flop and on the flop that the turn and river play is pretty standard. Or should we bet the turn bigger?

      So my main concern here is that pre flop is a bit spewy, same on the flop.

      Hello,

      I don't really like calling A2o here. The hand doesn't play really good postflop so against a rather unknown opponent I would either 3bet it or fold it.

      When he bets pot size on the flop I would fold here. Don't really want to face a turn aggression here and we could easily be behind.

      I think we can check back the turn here. I don't think we get better hands to fold and there is a little chance that worse calls us here.

      As played, the river is fine.

      Best,
      Plamen
