      Hi! The opponent is an unknown fullstack. With this particular Hand I am not so sure what to do on this limit. On NL25 it would be a grey zone spot and very opponent dependent whether to 4bet/call or call the 3bet oop.

      I called ingame because I was missing the read that he either calls or 5bets light over a 4bet.

      In this particular spot I expect him to have a good amount of blufs in his range that missed this flop to a great extent. My plan is to c/c -> c/f unimproved.

      The Ace brings a good card for him to actually bluff us from third pairs, or even Jx. No reason to fold here.. I'm not even sure if he would have cbet baby aces on the turn, but u can never know. On the river he is polarized on nuts or nothing. His play would make sense with AJ (can be discounted a bit), A3s,A5s,A6s,33,66,JJ,AA - Since we don't know his bluffing frequencies, isn't it a bit vague to call the river then, expecting him to actually give up all his bluffs?

      Postflop: Calling the flop is fine esp with A and when you hit you have to call down for sure

      Preflop: I can't comment on whether 4betting is better or not, haven't played NL25 for quite a while. His 3-bet size is also on the smaller side so it favours calling I suppose.
