      River: ($110.50) :As: (2 players)
      Hero checks, BTN checks

      Results:[spoiler] $110.50 pot ($1 rake)

      Villain is same as in this hand. BU steal 78%. ~500 hands.

      1. What size do you like going for if cbetting?
      2. Do you agree we can't fold to the raise?
      3. Would you find a different line at any point?
      4. Here is villain's holding:

      $110.50 pot ($1 rake)
      Final Board: :Th: :7c: :Qs: :3s: :As:
      Hero showed :Ac: :Qh: :4c: :Kh: and won $109.50 ($54.50 net)
      BTN mucked :Td: :9h: :Ad: :2s: and lost (-$55 net)

      His line seems just bad to me. Can someone find a justification?

      Like bet/calling flop. X/fing turn and river though.

      He can't call flop, so he probably thinks raising has a positive EV. Which isn't completely unreasonable, given he blocks AA and TT. That said, not a fan of his raise with his hand.

      His thoughts:

      F: "I have a pair, and that fucker bets so small on that drawy board. He might not have much, I raise!"
      T: "Fuck, he called. He has something, can't make him fold"
      R: "Ok, I got 2 pairs, let's go to showdown"
