      Hello alexgrapid,

      We are human and human do mistakes. But at least you posted the hand and tried to find out what you did wrong, that's at least good. :)

      About the hand:
      Against that kind of opponent I'd just raise it up. As played on turn it's kinda close since he min-bet on flop and now is betting like very strong. It could be that he has here AQ or something similar, sometimes maybe even strong hand. Going for pot control on turn is totally fine. Although on river I guess I'd more often inclined to make the fold there, I just don't see him doing such moves with pure bluffs or just with Ax type of hands. I guess he wouldn't even play this way his 2pairs. Therefore I'd make the crying fold.

      Best regards.
