      Villain stats at time were 24/14/2.8 - 94 hands. First time I have seen him c/r. Has prev taken check/call line vs my c-bet with top pair.

      Thought process:

      Bet call flop to keep 1 pair hands + bluffs in his range.
      I was expecting him to bet turn, he checked. At this point I figured he either had air or a weak pair, I bet small for value. He c/r again which seems very strong to me and K 10 is big in his range now. I don't think two pair takes this line.
      River is a spade, so now flush draw and straight draw got there. Only beat a bluff?

      I think you played the hand way too passively. There are tons of flush and straightdraws on the flop, whom you're giving great odds now if you don't 3B here.

      It doesn't get any better on turn, why are you betting so small? I'd bet something around 4 because not only air or weak pairs are in his range also a ton of draws/combo/draws. As played he ch/r you AGAIN, don't you think he has a hand now with which he's willing to shove? You don't want to see any :spade: K or T on the river so at least just shove the turn imo.

      shove turn
      you´re not going to fold on blank river and his c/r range has two pair hands or some combo draws.
