      I didnt think he was good enough to check a flush twice so i though it's safe enough for me to value bet. What do you think?

      Hi Alficor1!

      Preflop
      I would 3-bet here ($1.2) as your hand is best most of the time. Fold to MP3 4-bet. On flop you are good most the of the time with AQ.

      As played:

      Flop:
      I would like to bet strong here, close to POT ($1 - $1.2), FD on board

      Turn:
      Bet 1/2 POT, fold to raise, (passive MP3) if just called fold to big river bet (1/2+ POT), make crying call to smallish bet.

      River:
      I like the play, may be bet little smaller - like1/3POT
