      I was 99% sure that I had this hand. The only question in my mind was how to earn the most money. I think that the check on the flop OOP was prudent. Was my mid-sized bet on the River correct, or would a lower bet (or none at all) have likely been more successful at getting the villain to continue?

      Hello WpgJets,

      Flop: Wouldn't say that Checking the flop is very bad. But if you know that the guy is a station and has very wide range I would just CB the flop while even having some backdoors and already a made hand.

      As played
      Turn: Most likely I would Bet it even bigger ~$0,16.
      River: And also bet a bit bigger here but here it's not a huge difference anyways just for the reason that he most likely has a weak hand cause any Qx would have bet the flop. So just the question how much is he willing to pay with weak hands.

      Best Regards.
