      For me, it looks pretty simple spot to bet,bet,bet for value. But recently I feel that V's raises me a lot on the river so I wanna be sure that my thinking is right.

      Flop is dry so I put my V on middle pairs and maybe QQ, sets, and AJs (maybe AJo), JTs. I play bet, bet, bet. On the river, I beat a large part of his range, even if he folds middle pairs he calls with QQ, and AJ and raises with better hands - so bet/fold is the right play here? I don't like x/c line because he is betting only with better hands and maybe with QQ (but probably he wouldn't) and checking behind with hands he would call my bet. Am I right?

      if you see players raising you a lot on the river then likely they can´t really have there only sets, so given that read I´d likely would b/c river especially if you asked time. But also if you don´t feel comfortable b/c river, you can always c/c. First you see what hands he he is calling two streets, he may easily bet river AJ/QQ/KK and you don´t have to fold your hand
