      MP3: $55.21 (110.4 bb)
      CO: $106.16 (212.3 bb) 30/22/1.6/28/305 vpip/pfr/af/wts/hands

      BB: $52.69 (105.4 bb)
      MP1: $23.06 (46.1 bb)
      MP2: $20 (40 bb)

      Preflop: Hero is SB with 4 4
      3 folds, CO raises to $2, BTN folds, Hero calls $1.75, BB folds

      Flop: ($4.50) 9 4 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $3, Hero raises to $8.75, CO calls $5.75

      Turn: ($22) J (2 players)
      Hero bets $12.50, CO calls $12.50

      River: ($47) 6 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $24, Hero calls $24

      On the flop I think it is fine check/raise for value and protection, although his cbet is only 42% an his AF not so high. Maybe I should come out with a bet here.

      On the turn I think that I could bet bigger. During the hand I was afraid him folding so I made a smallar bet.

      On the river his hand looked to me like a busted draw, and I thought that I can't take more value from him unless he makes a play with his draw.

      Flop: C/R is fine but I think the board isn't too wet. 943 is very disconnected. I rather check and hope a scare card comes on the Turn like an Ace or King, then we can get him to bluff another street, then we jack up the size of the pot.

      But I just realized stacks are deep so c/r flop is probably a good idea.

      Rest of the hand: Just bet and bet. I don't see why you think he has a busted draw all the time. He has so many overpairs which may just check back the River. Even if he bets what's your plan? C/R? or C/C? C/R may not get you value from worse. C/C is just wasting such a strong hand. It's almost always better to bet for value with nutted hands yourself than to check and try getting value from busted draws simply because people tend to play more combos of top pairs than draws.
