      Preflop: I make my 3bet a little bigger - 1.60 actually, because you don't want to give him odds for set value when you're so deep.

      Flop: A little smallish bet but I think it's OK

      Turn: I would bet the turn again - no reason to think we're behind just yet. Villain could easily have made a bad call of your 3bet with AJ or maybe QQ/TT preflop that he doesn't want to fold, or even AQ that he called the small flop bet with and now hit.

      River: As played just calling is your plan of course, but I think you could get more value in this hand by betting the turn aswell.
