      C-bet is fine. Q completes JT and there are a whoel manner of 2-pair or pair+ draw hands he can have no so I figure it's better to check it back for pot control? River completes the straight and I figure he cant bet without a T here so decide to just flat. He wont be calling a raise with anything worse?

      I would try with miniraise on the river. He might call you with QJ or KJ.

      Other than that nice hand.

      T: This is a must value bet. Sure TJ, Q9, Q8 improve - but 67, 7T, 9T, 9J, 8T, 8J, worse Kx, flush draws, and potentially 9x will call.

      R: Would also make a small raise.

      Hello Meemawuk,

      Turn: Nah, you still get a lot value from a lot of draws on turn and obviously even weaker pairs. Therefore I'd rather be it for protection and as well for free showdown.

      As played
      River: Guess you can even threw a small raise here while he seems to be somewhat fishy and only one hand beats us while he still could Call with some sets/2pairs here our small raise.

      Best regards.
