      I didn't c-bet bigger if he doesn't like his hand, he folds anyway. Also I wanted to have free river by checking T if I don't hit.

      When I hit Q on turn I go for protection. Is checking behind better? When he reraises me here, he has at least AQ or some set. I don't remember my argument for calling him. B/F is probably better here?

      If we c-c turn. Do we b/f this river or just check behind? I would probably call his smaller river bet.

      Hello yaxkukmian,

      B/F is probably better here?

      Yes, I guess I would likely Bet/Fold on turn unless I know the opponent better. And betting ain't that wrong there, although sometimes you could as well take a pot control line and Check behind since he will anyways have hard time Calling with a lot weaker pairs, although while we still get value from draws it's considerable.

      If we c-c turn. Do we b/f this river or just check behind? I would probably call his smaller river bet.

      Yes, you can likely Bet/Fold the river, depending on the card. Or either Call his small bet on river.

      Best regards.
