      My thoughts are that getting flat called behind on BU to my PFR I am probably not facing an overpair (or a 2!) on the flop with my TPTK. So I bet for value.

      On the turn I feel I would be unlucky to have him with a J although it is in his range (AJ?) but then again he flatted my flop bet so I think more likely an underpair say 55-99 so again I bet for value.

      When he goes AI on the river I am getting 8-1 or so, I considered b/f but with those pot odds I felt I had to call. He might have KT<

      The alternative way is to pot control, with c/c on the turn then c/f or c/c if small bet on the river. Any thoughts?

      you can´t control size of the pot, since he only has 40bb
      Easy b/c with his stack size on the turn and shove river
      He would call you down with worse hands getting that good pot odds.
