      Hi,


      I'd c-bet less on the flop. There is no chance he folds any pair on that board ever, and while it's good for us if he peels with worse overcards, he might not if we make it too big, plus we'll really bloat the pot with AK-high which can make for gross situations later on.

      As for the river who knows. He could be betting A-high for the hell of it, he could be betting any pair, he could show up with stuff like floated QJ and bluff at it or he might not. I don't really expect him to recognize that he needs to bluff with 22 there but he might.

      I'd say it's probably a close fold but given that he's obviously bad and you have position on him often, the information you gain from seeing his card there coupled with the fact that you're for sure ahead of his random range sometimes makes it a fine call.


      Hope it helps.
