      Another pretty standard hand. You had to bet the flop to protect from the flush and Q10, 78 etc.. type hands. On the turn you have 2 options in my opinion:

      1) Of course bet. You have the virtual nuts now so bet for value.

      2) Check for bluff induce. You may lose some value on the turn but there is a chance that villain could make a move. It all depends on villain though. Is he tight or loose? In some situations against a loose/bluffy opponent I might check/call the turn to make it look like I might be drawing. Definitely betting is the first choice though.

      On the river the bet is fine. You might try 0.85/0.95 or even less to make it look like a block bet or a weak bluff but maybe that's a little fancy. As played the hand is fine.

      Hello sebsejr,

      I'd still Bet a bit bigger on flop & turn to protect my hand from any kind of draws. :)

      Best Regards.
