      STandard bet on all streets, did not want to give draws away for free. Considered betting more on flop turn but now seeing his hand he probably would have called anything.

      First off, you should have raised pf! You're giving other ppl with medium and drawing hands a chance to see a cheap flop, and you have to remember that AAs are not invincible.

      Other than that, postflop, I'm pretty sure he won't be folding his trip 8s to anything.

      +1

      You also want to extract value from your hand and the best way to that is start building the pot preflop.

      Postflop:

      I'd raise it to 2$ on the drawy board. bet 3.5$ on the turn and around 1/2 psb on the river for value.

      lowest pair on flop + FD
      trips on river only.

      But anyway , SB will not fold FD + pair on this flop.

      since you just checked Preflop , you should just check behind on the river in my opinion

      I´d also raised it pf
      Postflop game is fine, I´d just bet smaller on the river to get called for Qx/Jx hands
