      I think the play until river is standard. I Bet turn for protection against a Ad, and for value against most hands of his range.

      I'm not sure about my value-bet river. His passive line suggests me that he doesn't have the flush (I assume it would have been value-betted on the river), so I decided to value-bet against queens or things. But I am wondering if a queen would call here or if I would only be called by sets/2pairs on here? Or maybe my bet river also have some fold equity against 2pairs or stuff? Anyway, I don't think it is well played, but I am a little lost when thinking about it, I only think that I should have took the check behind?

      Do you have any comments?

      I don't like bets, flop u can make it 3.25-3.75, turn also at least 6.5-7.5 and then it's izi decision on riv...

      If I see well, his stats are 77/0 (?), then would bet on bigger side

      You're right about my turn sizing. Closer to 7$ might have been better. I didn't want to commit myself while playing that's why my turn bet is so small (1/2 pot is not too tiny either, so I though it was playable)
      On the flop I did bet the same amount I bet on such flops vs 2 opponents (just below 3/4potsize)

      And yep, his stats even got worse after more hands!

      I also prefer bigger turn bet to get value from worse hands and since you also hold K high flushdraw I think you can´t really b/f there
      I´d also shove river. He should all you down with Qx
