      Villain is unknown.

      Isn't my river bet a bit too obvious? Against a thinking player it could almost be like just saying "I'm afraid of the flush. If you push i'll fold." So that's my main concern here. What to do on the river? I guess the earlier streets are fine.

      well it may seem, but what hands he is really going to shove there. Tunr his AQ into bluff and think you´d b/f river AK+. Just a lot of players don´t do it so you don´t have to worry too much about that
      I would likely bet river half potsize bet and expect to get called down by worse Ax hand
