      Opponents are 40/20 and 40/9
      I checked back the turn to keep the pot smaller because I was afraid of better ace, two pair... On the river I made a call because the bet was pretty small and I gave him chance to bluff with my turn check?

      Preflop: looks good to isolate the limper IP

      Flop: We can make this cbet slightly larger for value versus 3 people (and protection).

      Turn: Since no draws completed we can still get value from them so I would bet again. This can also buy us a free showdown if we decide to have one.

      River: On the river I say it's close once the flop FD completes. He still has worse Ax in his range but I feel those, along with Qx, would check more often. So I think bluff catching is close since he still needs to bluff/bet worse >25% of the time.

      If he does check river I would valuebet myself, about 1/2 pot.
