      In the previous hands you opened 4bb with weaker hands and you are opening 3bb with AA. Why is that?

      I would bet bigger on the flop - $0.24.
      Board is quite drawy and we want to take as much value as possible.

      I like raising the turn here but I'd rather make it around $0.9.

      As played, river is pretty bad so checking back is good.

      You're right. I should have opened 4bb, and once I opened 3bb everyone insta-folded except the caller. I should maintain my 4bb raise pre with my whole range. :)
