      I went bit looser here, since player in BB was a rock and also limper was quite TAGish, so I raised A5 as steal.
      CBet as usual and than picked up an A .
      Did I overreact with bet here?

      NH. You could c/c the turn, but since rocks dont bet themselfs big PP with an A on the board its better to bet your self ;)
      You could bet 1xbb more on the flop, but thats minor.

      If you want to play A5o out of position, that's fine but raise bigger to negate position.

      Ideally you can make it $0.5 and shove any Flop as the perfect stealmove :)

      As played you have to shove the TUrn so nh

      Best regards,
