      Hello, I would raise preflop. As played, I would just call the raise on the river. No point making the pot too big in an unraised pot without the nutz. If the board wasn't paired, I would 3bet it.

      raise pf
      since it is limped pot, then bet/call is fine
      you could get value for lower flushes or some other hands, but I generally think if player would check every street and then c/r they usually tend to have nuts

      Even though PS.com recommends raising AJ from MP1, personally it never worked for me. I just fold it. I would definitely raise from MP3 though.

      Calling isnt an option either because you might be dominated when you hit your A and you wont hit 2pair or flush enough times. When you hit your flush you might not get payed either.

      As played I bet(semi-bluff) turn like 0.25-0.30, unless he has a set, straight or draw he can't continue imo and we have good outs. If we miss, this helps create an aggro image(bluffer) which gets them to pay us when we do hit in later hands.

      As played on turn I bet 0.35 and try and get all in vs a worse flush, straight, trips, etc...only FH beats us, and a set would have bet on previous streets for protection. I happily go broke here. If not, whats the point of calling pf with this hand? lol
