      So I was planning on valuebetting till the end, in retrospect I still like the valuebet on the river altough it might be better to bet it smaller like $4.50 for two reasons:

      1) not sure if he's gonna call 3 times with AQ/AJ/AT if I bet this big.

      2) harder to fold when he raises it in.

      Another thing. Can I call his raise? I really don't see him doing this with worse two pair to be honest... I think the most part of his range is a fdraw here so that's why I decided to fold it.

      I agree that you could've bet a little smaller on river because the flush got there and he might make a hero fold w Ax, and I also bet/fold.

      I wonder do we get it in on the turn, if raised?

      Hi,

      I like your big valuebet in the end, since he would going to call you down most times with AQ/AJ and if he raises it should be easy fold.
      If you bet small to 4-4.5$ then he might easily see that as blockbet and might bluffraise which makes that spot more difficult to play.

      best regards,
