      open range BU : 33%

      He raised a little bit more preflop so i didn't want to 3bet him and fold if he 4bets or play OOP with AQ vs his probably strong range or whatever OOP.
      Any comments on the play?
      River bet: I didn't want to check and call a bet there because most of the time I think he will have me beat but I do like bet/folding there since he might even fold better hands than mine such as 2 pair/overpairs.Since i don't see many 9 in his range I think betting is fine or i'm wrong ?

      bet sizing!!
      i would reraise u with air; bcs u bet so weak that turn and river. you want to be reraised there.
      a question 4 u: he normaly open 5x on the buton? i open smaller:P
      make a note about his buton range openning.
      better to do that call than make a raise on the flop don't take the initiative betting so weak. cya:P

      I'm talking selfishly probably but all the regs here fear me alot and they never raise my bets unless they are pretty strong here.He is never raising a AA/KK/JQ there probably only sets. SO bet sizing for me is okey.Also he is never bluffing the river because of what i said as he knows i'm most of the time trapping and snapping a raise.

      his raise size is quite scary but if it his regular opening size, then I would prefer 3-bet to take pot down pref-lop or if he calls then take initiative
      I think your postflop game is fine. If you´re sure that you´re ahead on the flop you can also c/r and balance your range by c/r with draws and sets
