      Hi.

      I think AJs is a little too strong to limp here. Maybe AT could be limped, A9 would definitely be a limp for me.

      As played you already lose to QX and KJ so I don't think you should be value betting the River. I would c/c here.

      Thanks.

      but Qx will often raise the turn? and he had a lot of AX ?(

      i disagree with that. QX will often call the Turn again especially if he has a weaker kicker like QT.

      Does he have enough worse AX hands? Unless you think he's playing A2+, then you may have value in a river bet.

      Let's see

      With A2s+, A9o+

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com
      Board: As2hQhQcTc
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 62.00% 56.00% 6.00% { AhJh }
      MP3 38.00% 32.00% 6.00% { AJs-A2s, KQs, Q9s+, KhJh, AJo-A9o, QTo+ }

      With ATo

      http://www.pokerstrategy.com
      Board: As2hQhQcTc
      Equity Win Tie
      MP2 56.82% 50.00% 6.82% { AhJh }
      MP3 43.18% 36.36% 6.82% { AJs-A2s, KQs, Q9s+, KhJh, AJo-ATo, QTo+ }

      He doesn't seem too loose to me. I think your value bet could be a little smaller, maybe half pot. But if I add all combos of KQ which is very possible IMO...

      MP2 50.00% 44.00% 6.00% { AhJh }
      MP3 50.00% 44.00% 6.00% { AJs-A2s, KQs, Q9s+, KhJh, AJo-ATo, KQo, QTo+ }

      My conclusion is that it's going to be thin, and AT would definitely be a check here. Since you are only a small equity favourite at the very most (50-55%), your bet should be between 1/3-1/2 pot.
