      First level of the tournament. No reads on opponent

      I raise preflop with A6s from MP and get one call from the CO

      Flop comes and I bet approx. half pot to get value from any overpairs, any possible high A-x that might see a turn and flush draw. When he re raises I'm conflicted with trying to getting it in vs calling and keeping worse hands in. I do call and if the turn is a heart ill slow down if not ill continue to play aggressive with any other peel

      Turn I decide to check raise. He played aggressive on the flop and if he has a over pair,on this card he is going to need to bet again to protect against flush draws and get value if he thinks his over pair is higher than mine (assuming he thinks I have one). When I re raise I am surprised we don't get it in on the turn

      The river comes and based on turn action I bet small to get a call or induce and when he shoves I make the call

      1. Should I be 3 betting the flop instead of the re raise turn?
      2. Is the turn re raise too small to get it all in? perhaps that's why he made the easy call because of odds
      3. What would be your river bet in this spot?

      Thanks for the help :)

      Kinda loose preflop, i think folding is not a bad ideea.

      Just calling seems fine if you intend to check/raise turn.
      Is the turn re raise too small to get it all in?
      You can bet a bit more, but even with this size you can get all in on the river easy.

      If you would 3bet the flop it would be an all-inn, because you need to invest more then 1/3 of your remaining stack if you 3bet like 40k in total. That’s the same issue on the turn and I would or call the turn or shove but keeping his range smaller seems better and the river is off course an easy push. You only playing 42k effective and the pot is over 100k.
