      79o could be a defend vs some. I don't mind folding, and I think 3betting this is a little too optimistic. There are many better hands which are too weak to call but can be used as part of your 4bet bluffing range.

      Flop: I think Flop check is fine but betting is fine too. You should recognise that people are never folding pairs here, and they are often not folding AQ/AJ on this board texture too. But if we bet, we fold out stuff like KQ/KJs/JTs/QJs/T9s etc.

      Turn: Good card to rep. I would bet like you did, and expect some folds from pocket pairs. When we check back flop, we represent AK/AQ a lot of the time.

      River: I think you should give up here. It's not certain whether he still has pocketpairs which can fold on the River.
