      Until the turn I guess everithing is pretty standard.

      On the turn I checked for pot control and because if he only had one pair I couldn't extract more that one street of value anyhow. I didn't feel that I have to protect that much against his straight draws (beeing so loose I don't think that he has that many legitimate draws that I need to protect against)

      On the river I bet so smal because I don't think he has much and I want to determine him to call.
      When he reraises I put him on something like 2 pair with the A (moast likely: A6,A7), KJ or a bluff. The QT could be posible from a player like him and maybe even some wierdly solwplayed sets. But against his whole range I decided I was ahead.

      I min rr to induce a bluff or a call from something weak that he decided to turn into a bluff.

      After he raises to 10 he kinda shows strencth, because I don't think he is ever going to fold to a shove. Should I have just called, or shove for value against his river made 2 pairs.

      I think you can also bet turn for value. He would still call once more with his pairs and draws. I would also 3-bet river for value, but then only call his 4-bet. You´re not any more ahead to shove there, since players would take that line more often with nuts than some two pair hands

      Best regards,
