      Easy valuebet on river! It is so unlikely that somebody get backdoor flush on river. What hand could they possibly hold since the A is on board? 7:s8 or something like that would be pretty unlikely

      I raise flop, i raise turn and get it in on the river if we're not yet all in.
      In NL20 people have difficulties folding Ax.

      sadly flop is too dry to raise on the flop, I think you can do smt like min-raise or raise to 2-2,2$ to keep Ax hands in, although I think call is also fine.
      Turn raise is fine, but shove river.
      Any player that has there flush, should shove himself and don´t think players expect you to bet there always.
      Since they also get very good odds, they would likely look you up with Ax.
