      Villain is 21/21 over 25 hands.

      Pre flop I decided to call. I should dominate a pretty good part of his range, and AJ will do pretty well against his opening range in general. Didn't see much of a reason to potentially 3bet here, since I think AJ is a bit too strong to turn into a bluff here.

      On the flop I obviously can't fold to one bet. However, could I consider raising here for thin value against weaker Ax and maybe flush draws? Or is calling better, even on a fairly wet board?

      The turn doesn't really change anything. He could easily be betting flush draws and worse Ax here as well as some random other hands most likely. Since I didn't raise the flop, I don't think raising the turn makes much sense?

      On the river I wasn't quite sure what to do would he have bet again. If the river was a spade I'd just check/fold the river, and on most blanks I was prepared to just check/call gain. However the K isn't the greatest card. Though I'd expect him to check behind Kx pretty often on the turn, he could certainly be betting it as well, so he can certainly have a number of Kx in his range on the river.

      So in case he would've bet the river, would this have been a call?
