      Im quite prudent on the river, so I would have checked behind:

      1 - I think his most probable holding was some sort of gutshot draw (he would have bet more a made hand, wouldnt he?), maybe with a flush draw that made him call your bet turn (somehing like Td8d). Nothing that he would call you with on the river anyway provided he didnt hit.

      2 - The other option would have been that he flopped the draw and slowplayed it... in this case your shove river is his dream come true.

      then again I may be too conservative on the river...


      I might have raised his bet on the flop since it seems so weak, you probably still have the best hands. Would have raised turn as well.

      Question: what about a simple call on the flop? He gave you correct odds to do so, and then you can expect him to bet other streets as well. I dont know, it's definitely no the way I would have played it, but it seems reasonable as well.

      I'd raise a little more on the flop. Turn is ok, but I don't see why you bet the river that big with only TPTK. Which weaker hand should call you?
