      Preflop:
      Rather strong hand vs SB,BB so obviously raises.

      Flop:
      Well Cbet hoping he did not decide to call with Ax hand :P

      Turn:
      Wasn't sure if I should continue to fire here.

      River:
      Well was a free check and I was rather sure he had som sort of Ax here.

      Should I check the turn instead in these situations, he could also have hit a set?

      Villain:

      i check behind the turn for pot control. would be ugly to check/raised here. that river i would definately call if he decides to bet it because it makes it less likely for him to have ax. as played u shud probably bet the river again for value, unless hes very passive postflop.

      Hello Resilence,

      What's the reason to CB in first place on the flop? This also answers you the turn play.

      He has W$SD on the river 90% for 300 hands, so I can't really see him paying you with a lot worse hands anyways and the main idea of betting the turn is to do it for free showdown and value from Tx/draws.

      Best Regards.

      Well I guess the cbet was because I was the aggressor, I didn't like the aces, but I thought he would call with PP not something.

      Would you rather avoid cbetting on such a flop?

      Is check flop, bet turn, check river better in these situations versus this type of villain?

      What PP will Call you on the flop? :) Only hands I see what could be calling is Tx and GS. You also block some combos.

      But how to get maximum value from those PPs? By CBetting the flop or rather Checking behind?

      Ok I see, think I get it now, however it gives him perfect opportunity to bluff with an A on the board.
      Maybe the reason I didn't understand is because I focus to much on what he had, and not how I was supposed to play against him.
