      Standard play is cbet all in. Opinions on whether it's worth gambling the larger stack on villain not holding an ace? Would a half pot cbet be good in this case since I'll get information about where I'm at without committing my whole stack?

      I would bet half pot here, if u shove i think u will be called alot by Ax, if he raise
      i would fold... but if he calls i think i go broke on Turn.

      you cant make Ax fold here... but id bet, maybe he has a midpair... 1/2 to 2/3 seems ok.
      if he calls, c/f tunr & river unless you hit the K.

      edit: if he raises, fold

      With normal 15-25BB stack this would be easy push preflop, but since you have increased stack...

      You have to raise instead of push preflop. You're HU on the flop, so c-bet is mandatory and since board is pretty dry I would just bet 2.5$ and give up if villain shows action because in that case you're way behind most of the time.

      How about raising to $2 next time so you can shove easily on the Flop OOP HU.

      Anyways I like the 1/2 cbet since only an Ace will call you/raise you.

      They might call with a PP postflop but here you need statistics to proof it

      Best regards,

      1/2 pot bet on flop is standard hu and will tell you about his hand. easy fold after a push from his part
      also pf bet should be a bit bigger as you hold AQo and you want to push out of the hand as many players as possible
