      What do you think?
      With particular attention on the turn.
      His call on the flop made me think of a set of 2 or 9, since he pretty much never calls me being behind (and this was the first time for me to see him with a limped AK), therefore I decided to give up on the turn, however the 2nd 9 and the flush draw gave me a hint to bet, is it a mistake tho?
      I thought so because the chance of a check/raise from him with a set is pretty high, and we definitely want to see the river card at this point, am I wrong?

      If you want more specific stats on him to tell me the optimal move there, just ask!

      Hello AtrociousNightmare,

      Seems to be pretty standard, I would have played the same way. Nice hand!

      Best Regards.

      Thx!
      But... I still have doubts for the turn.

      Wouldn't have been better to check behind?
      What's the reason of betting on the turn?
      What about the size?

      And why would you give him a free card if you Call the river anyways? :D There are just too many worse cards which could appear and we don't want to see. Think also about the river and not only that you are scared on the turn.
