      Hello homepokertourney,

      Please could you fix your post next time, I don't see any suits. There should be a hand history copy button be which you can use with suits. You can always press Preview to see if your post has the suits or not and then likely just post it when it does. Either i don't see stacks or anything.

      Flop: Why didn't ya CBet here? I'd just CBet and get value from weaker hands or even maybe some draws.

      As played
      Turn: Definitely bet at least here for value and protection.
      River: I'd often even consider here just Check/Calling, since he will not very often Call us with a lot worse here, unless the villain is calling station. Let him try to bluff his draws or something similar. Might even find a fold against a big bet.

      Best regards.

      Best regards.
