      Hero checks, MP3 bets $3.50, Hero calls $3.50.

      ------------------

      I think my lines on flop and turn were correct - I call with implied odds and bet turn to fold out random AT-AQ and maybe some PP. Not sure if my thinking is correct. Please comment.

      -----------------

      On the river I think I made a bad call, since only missed FD may bluff and vs. his value range (AK, KK, AA, sets) I am beat. Would c/f be the best line on the river?

      You should c/r flop, since it balance your c/r range if you have there 66/22 and he might easily fold to your c/r his medium pp-s, like QQ-77 or fold turn his Kx hands
      As played: betting turn is fine, although with AQ high you can also call again since you´re ahead his air, but since he might easily fold his 6x, 7x hands you can also bet out yourself
      After you hit your tp you can´t really c/f, so I like c/c to induce bet from missed draws and bluffs

      Hello Dawidas888,

      Preflop: I guess you can even 3bet here, although Calling ain't like a big mistake.
      Flop: Check/Raise is somewhat reasonable but it's hard for us to Call an all-in, therefore I might just take the implied odds in multiway pot and Check/Call, sometimes it might be even possible to donk it against various opponents.
      Turn: If you are donking here then I wouldn't show my hand with the donk size here, rather make a normal donk like at least $2.
      River: I guess I would just my own block-bet/fold here like $3 while he might just Check behind his Kx type of hands but while he could pay us. I am not really big fan of Check/Call since he ain't going to bet with a lot worse hands here anyways, mostly it's for value, therefore rather Check/Fold.

      Best regards.
