Hi Rule110.

In my opinion your C bet sizing is fine, but your 3bet sizing is a bit small. If the villain has an A, then he is probably ready to call off more than your bet, so you should probably make him do so immediately. All waiting may do is cause you to be drawn out on, or wake the opponent up to the fact he might be beaten on later cards. As the board rolled out, there is a decent chance that the Aces in his range to call a pre flop raise may have gotten there, OR that he may well believe that YOU got there, and this could result in you not getting more value from him.

I think your turn bet is fine when he checks again.

Your river bet is also fine.

So the only thing I'd think aobut changing is either flat his C/R on the flop (to disguise your hand strength, you probably are NOT behind here), or raise to a more standard 3bet size of about $1.45 to $1.50 or so to go.

Hope it helps.
