      Raise bigger preflop, 3x/4x.

      Flop and turn are okay, you're valuecutting yourself against Kx a bunch but with so many draws out there there certainly is value to be had from worse hands.

      On the river it's a fold unless villain can bluff with paired hands like JT, which some aggro fish will, others won't because they have something, hard to say without reads.

      Hope it helps.
