      Hi rubysilesia!

      On the flop you bet a bit more than half potsize to get calls from worse hands. On the turn and river you play check/call because you are way ahead or way behind. Nice hand!

      Good luck at the tables!

      I think you should bet/fold turn. He called you on the very dry board, so either has pocket pair, ace x, or 8. It isn´t always way ahead/way behind beacuase there are enough bad players who call you flop bet with Ax.

      If you bet on the turn your opp will fold a lot of hands you want to gain value from. By checking the turn on this ace high board a lot of opponents will think their pocket sevens, nines, tens, jacks or AQ,AJ,A10 are good and will bet them for value, sure you will get called by these hands sometimes but it´s more value in letting them bet with them.

      At NL 5 tables you would bet. Of course it depends on the opponent, but mostly you are getting called with worse hands, especially with Ax and maybe even pocket pairs.

      But you could play also with check/call for pot control and bluf induce.
