      Pfr: A matter of preference I think, some people would advocate a raise here but I think limping is fine because the two other limpers look like stations, and I wouldn't want to get into a multiway raised pot with A5s. However, if you limp you need to be able *not* to overplay your pair if the ace hits. You're doing it to hit the flush, not the ace.

      Flop: Ok if your plan is bet/fold ;)

      Turn: Ok

      River: Just call the small bet. He won't call your raise with a worse hand
