      Against a seemingly super aggressive guy, is calling here on the flop fine? He probably missed completely, so I figured it was.

      Also, do we value bet the turn, or do we check back to induce him to bluff again? Clearly not folding if he does bet on the river.

      I'm pretty sure betting is fine, but I'm not 100% sure which allows me to get the most money out of him, because he's probably just going to fold almost everything on the turn.

      I like the way you played the hand here.

      Calling the flop here looks good as A high is going to be the best hand here most of the times.

      Once he checks the turn we should always bet here. We want to build up the pot here and not give him free cards and we could go for something like $0.18.
