      I think the title is quite explicit. I decided to valuebet twice against big hearts. My turnbet also helps to getting bluffed out of the pot, since I don't like the check/call being OOP to play the river. I then bet/fold the turn and I don't remember if I planned a check/call or a check/fold river, I suppose a check/call river to catch the busted hearts, thinking a made hand might often be scared to valuebet here at this limit (and I don't face thin valuebets often)
