      Preflop ATo is a bit loose open from UTG, but my main target was BTN, who can coldcall behind with a lot of trash I can get value from.
      Flop is a standard cbet for value.
      On the turn I decided to bet for value again, although a raise would be awful here deepstacked...
      On the river I planned to ch/call, the pot is big enough for the strength of my hand, and he can bet a lot worse as bluff or for value. But after I improved to top2pair, I decided to bet for value myself. To the push I think I had to fold, it is a very strong line even from an aggro fish, and he can have a lot of flush combos, which he slowplayed till river.
      What do you think?

      If he's called till river he either has a flush or a flush draw. If you bet you don't get value from flush draws and get raised by flushes. If you check river flushes bet but missed flush draws could also bluff. So I think you should check/call river to get value from flush draws bluffs and to keep the pot small.

      Hello pcfmcc02,

      Most likely I'd still go for a Bet on the river to get value from worse Ax hands/2pairs. He can definitely have a lot worse hands in his calling range there and if we get raised this way then I would more often to expect to be behind.

      Best Regards.
