      Hello there!

      stats: vpip/pfr/agg factor/hands
      UTG: 30/10/3.0/258
      CO: 52/16/2.2/25

      I didn't 3b the flop because I didn't want to scare him off an overpair and to keep him in with some overcards like ATs+. I guess he could have some T9s,98s,78s, .. but he seems to be opening tight. However isn't it a obvious 3b for value and protection??

      I think I fail pretty big on the Turn. I think I should have raised pretty big and call it of on the river. Or maybe just shove on the turn.

      On the river I actually don't know what I was thinking. Probably I couldn't figure out what I can beat on that river. TT and 66 beat me anyway, QQ/AA got there, flushdraw got there.. The only hand I beat there is AQ,AT ?

      Hello TheCoon,

      Flop: Raise the flop and protect your hand, raising the turn will look a lot stronger!

      As played
      Turn: Why do you raise so small? What's the purpose of the raise? You are giving very good odds for him to Call.

      As played
      River: Well, he played it correctly but you made a mistake and not much you can do on the river when a draw completes.

      Best Regards.
