      Hero wins with a pair of aces (Ac 9c)
      preflop - standard check
      flop - bet 2/3 pot with top pair and middle kicker
      turn - bet 3/4 pot
      river - I think here is my mistake - now I think, I should bet also here, flush draw wasn't completed, he could not had set - he would raise my bets on flop or turn and bet on river. Could 35 be in his range? How much I should bet on river? Are the bets on flop and turn OK?

      Thank you for your opinions.

      I think your play was ok. Yes you can bet on river around 1/2 of pot for value from hands like he have. Yes he also can have 35s but that won't happen to often so bet 1/2 pot on river and if he raises, just fold. Good luck at tables.

      Hello toteatoo,

      Well, either way it's fine. You could even consider isolating preflop if your postflop skills are better but taking a passive approach isn't wrong either. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.
