      I dont think you played the hand terribly here as you'll be raised by the hands that beat you most of the time and called by the hands that don't. Probably got max value here against his weaker A. I don't think he's ahead often enough (if ever), given the way it was played, for you to be behind at all on the river.

      Hello deivid2,

      Nah, seems to be fine. Against such an opponent you can even consider betting it bigger on the flop but overall ain't a mistake this way either.

      Best Regards.
