      Bet flop and turn against flush draws for value

      River is probably still a bet against hands like KQ QJ TK and fold to a raise. I there are many hands with a diamond that could have called and hit a pair and decided not to give up. However facing a raise its usually completed flushes or 2p

      Next time you might want to provide more information on your opponent statistics like vpip pfr so we can better understand the situation and give more useful advice.

      Can't you see the image ?

      There is a whole table there listing all his stat, and i do believe this spot needed different route than standard play.

      I think the turn check is fine but the River play doesn't make any sense

      Firstly I think you should bet the River if not the Turn.
      Also, about the river c/r

      1) what monster would you ever play in this way?
      2) 99 never folds
      3) His line looks a lot like a weaker QX. C/C seems so much more reasonable. If he somehow played AdX so passively too, you beat that as well.

      Well i could have gone for 3xbet but apart from sets and flushes i do not expect that he could have better but even those hands should play fast because the hand is very vulnerable, nut flush might just call the flop but can't just limit him to that, and even that should raise.

      Turn i was on c/r hopefully he looks me up light.

      I realize he might not have much that can call there apart from maybe Adxd flush and 99 but that is the value range.

      What would you do if you bet and he pushes ?

      Can't we see any bluffs in his range here that would bet, making river check legit, and can't we see any cards like tx , 9x that might call me down ?

      Considering my line looks like bluff, he had his half stack committed there.

      Hi.

      You should recognize that your hand is only medium strength on this monotone.

      "Turn i was on c/r hopefully he looks me up light."

      This is clearly overplay

      "What would you do if you bet and he pushes ?"

      Snap fold

      I was seriously wondering whether you were trying to turn your hand into a bluff or go for value. AQ is WAY too strong to turn into a bluff, and going for c/r is just suicidal.
