      Nice hand?

      Thought he would have jacks/tens lot of the time. Plan was to fire a 2nd barrel on the turn. Is this bad?

      River I bet kinda big to make it look like I want to scare/bluff him

      Hi,

      Why are you not betting turn?

      As played seems fine I guess, altho I think I prefer slightly smaller on the river.

      Is it ok his preflop 3bet size? I thought it should be 3x raise, so 4.5$ or even 4$ IP. and OOP we can raise 4.75-5$ ?
      Because if we raise so large, are really AJ, AQ, small PP going to call us, which we want?

      I'm not betting turn because I think he has JJ/TT a lot of the time and I want to induce vs that (or make them bluffcatch R). Another big part of his range is prob AQ. QK want call 2 more streets anyway. . So I don't see why checking turn would be bad.

      On the river I just wanted to look spewy/bluffy. If I bet halfpot I think he has an easy fold with TT/JJ and now he can level himself. QK wouldn't fold anyway probably.

      I guess I just don't think anyone ever levels themselves into calling on the river against a bigger bet. If you really think they do, I guess it's fine.

      Allright,

      Is the flopbet bad? (I plan to barrel most turns to make him fold a PP) or is his range too AQ/QK heavy?

      flop is fine since you can barrel spades and get him to fold like 77-JJ by the river. Also I 3bet smaller here.
