      Maybe raise on turn? On river, I didn't see any point betting, when any Tx broadway completed + flush...

      Hello faronel,

      Preflop: Hand is strong enough to even raise here.

      As played
      Postflop: While it was a freeplay pot and he pots the turn I might even lay down my hand to avoid any hero-calls on river while we can't be even sure how good our hand is nor that if he bets pot with just Ax hands.

      Of course river is never a value-bet in that kind of spot.

      Best Regards.
