      Hi,
      MP3 had fishy stats, so I attempted to steal his limp. I also thought that I'm ahead of his range even if he calls. Do you think it's a possible play?
      On the flop, there's probably no reason not to bet such a great board, right?
      On the turn, should I bet again, or is the check correct? There are not too many hands which beat me, but I was worried that he limped in and called on the flop with a better ace

      Thanks!

      Just bet each street imo and try and go all-in if hes fishy.

      Him having the last A is very unprobable and if he has it you could still beat his kicker since a better kicker prob raises pf. Also he might call down a pp not believing you have the A.

      Think to yourself what is more probable: Him having the last A AND a better kicker, A7, 77 or him calling down with A2,A3,A4,A5,A6,A8,KK,QQ,JJ, TT, 99,88,66,etc lol

      Thanks! Good to see this preflop play isn't criticized :)
      By the way, he had AQ, so as it turned out I was behind till the river
