      Villain is unknown. Potential fish, judging by stack and the fact that he managed to swing his stack around ~0.5BI in 6 hands.

      If the Villain is full stacked i am not doing this, of course. Flop is pretty standart IMO, also i asume that a smaller bet would be more like a bluff induce, but a bigger against potentialy bad player here is just not necessary. I made the descision on the river quiet fast actually so am curious, is it ok to do this?

      Sure. All sorts of busted stuff he could pot shove the river with, he could have rivered a worse top pair as well, I don't really think you have a choice getting 2:1 without further reads. NH.

      If I had to change anything it would be not c-betting the flop especially if he's rather aggressive, as getting check/raised there by a blurry range with AJ-high isn't really what we're looking for and this board hits a lot of hands somewhat.

      Hope it helps.
