      Preflop: Hero is BB with A, Q.
      4 folds, CO raises to $0.30, 2 folds, Hero calls $0.20.

      Flop: ($0.65) T, 5, 4 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $0.45, Hero calls $0.45.

      Turn: ($1.55) 3 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO bets $1.00, Hero calls $1.00.

      River: ($3.55) 9 (2 players)
      Hero checks, CO checks.

      Final Pot: $3.55.

      Results follow:

      Hero shows a flush, ace high(Ah Qh).
      CO shows three of a kind, nines(9c 9d).

      Hero wins with a flush, ace high(Ah Qh).



      Villain is an agro 43/23.

      Definitely getting the right odds to call flop and standard BB defence but what about turn?

      Think I missed value on the river mind.

      Hi.

      Flop is between c/c and c/r here. I think it's acceptable to c/r and barrel off vs some opponents esp if you think you can get them to fold overpairs by the River. C/C is good against opponents who like to rep the flush or Q/A.

      Note that the board has 3 low cards, allowing you to represent 9 combos of sets.

      As played, river is CR if you expect him to try repping the flush. River is a donkbet if he is not bluffy and you expect him to check back made hands.

      Thanks.

      That's great, thank you.

      Just doing some notes and wrote down similar thing to you.

      Was happy to X/C flop given his aggression.

      River I definitely thought he'd bet but looking back I still think the donk is better here.

      Appreciate the response.
