      Would it have been better to ch/raise the flop?
      My thinking at the time was that i was way ahead and could get another street of value, with check call. board gets worse on the turn.

      In hind sight i think I should have ch/fold the river because Villian barrels turn and value bets big on the river close to pot.

      But at the same time there's only 2 hands in villains range that I do not beat QQ and AK

      What would have been a good way to play this?

      Hello TeddyTaiwan,

      Preflop: Why do you min-3bet here?

      As played
      Postflop: CB the flop, CB the turn and so on. But the turn card as played is really bad and I would rather fold it on the river cause you don't beat much there cause I doubt that the guy would even overplay KK/AA there.

      Best Regards.

      Cause a lot of sets/2pairs/straights possible? :)
