      I would bet flop because you need to protect and get value from his worse hands and there are many ugly turn cards that will slow down the action.
      As hes very agressive and you see him cbeting allot your move is fine.
      On turn is kinda tricky because he called your raise so he could have some kinda draws but as he so agressive he would probably bet his draws on turn but in not sure since you c/r him on flop.River its clear value bet that 9 didnt changed much and his turn bet is kinda weak so maybe try to steal the pot since you checked.

      Hello ragney,

      Preflop: Fold it here. ;) Ain't worth playing with such a hand. Mostly I'd say for beginners you don't play them profitable.

      As played
      Flop: The idea of Check/Raising on such board is great, we hit our 2pair type of hand and that's one of miracle hits what we went for preflop. Size should also be fine. The idea of Check/Raise was that he was PFA and then he is going to CBet most of the hands here and also if he has the Ace then might even pay us off or with any kind of draw.
      Turn: The 9 didn't change much, I might even consider Betting myself here.
      River: And likely playing for stacks here, only reasonable hand what beats us is TT but as long we are killing 1 T then it's not likely him to have the hand, more often just an Ace.

      Best regards.
