      I played it like I was week. As I had pocket pair other than AA. Therefore, so small bet on the flop. I was not afraid of flush draw. Turn: Small bet, like I was affraid of flush draw. To indicate b/f.

      Bet near to pot size on the flop, at least $9 for me.

      Looks like an aggressive player, can have a weaker A, can have a FD, won't go away, and going broke against him will be fine. Do it as early as possible. Don't give draws the odds to call.

      Going broke on any turn, but like to have more money on the flop already, and bet bigger on the turn.

      Given that you also read this guy as aggressive, I don't think you should be trying to keep him in the pot, he will do that all by himself.

      That's my opinion at least. ;)

      I would bet a little more on the flop, because there are flushdraw on the flop- 7$ should be enough.
      Turn suckes, but he could still shove Ax, so b/c line is fine to take.
      Other option would be check back and call river bet- but if I´d expect players to play draws aggressively on the flop, I´m happy to b/c turn.
