      Didn't expect many folds so decide to check back. Now looking would like more that I made cbet.
      River he made snap bet, so thought he 's quite polarized.

      Adjustings to his play?

      Depends on his flop aggression. If he attacks these boards a lot with chR, then chekcback is better, to realize our equity, and maybe some showdown value. If he is passive, then cbet is fine.

      His turn/river betsizing looks more like a valuebet, but I agree that his range is quite narrow.
      After showdown, it turned out that he's just an idiot, and we should adjust accordingly (bluffcatch him on drawy boards with even 2rd/3rd pairs f.e.).

      Hello DimnjacarGogi,

      Preflop: Fold? Why would you open A9o from UTG. :(

      As played
      Postflop: CB the flop or just give it up, you can't Call the turn cause you just don't have implied odds nor of course can't expect to be often enough ahead there.

      Best Regards.
