      PF: Open for value

      Flop: I c-bet on this relatively dry board w 2 overs

      Turn: I bet again for value when I hit my TPTK v his Tx and draws. I also intend to bet again on the River on any blank.

      River: When the T hits, I can't really see any worse hands that will call me so I just x behind.

      Hi Cheekopeh,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: I don't mind the flop cbet with position and 2overs/best hand. We can also barrel a few turns once called (as bluff).

      We can bet slightly larger for value on that turn. Low pairs/floats are likely to fold but Tx and draws and some stronger 1p hands can still call.

      On the river there's not a ton of value in a bet because we expect his range to be Tx/fds and rarely other pairs. Tx beats us now and FDs are folding and/or bluffing. So checking back is fine.
