      Apart from losing to the one possible hand that I thought that could beat me on the flop (AA / QQ are very unlikely given Pre-flop action & my hand), I think that I didn't play this quite right.

      I really should have been aiming to get all-in by the river, so bet bigger on the flop to set that up.

      As played: My rationale for betting small was that I wanted to get more action on the flop, which was pretty dry so hard to hit hard. I figured that smaller bets will be more likely to get PP's (most likely opponents range) and Qx type hands to call as well as Ax. f I get 2 or 3 callers it inflates the size of the pot pretty quickly. After the flop when it became heads up I think turn bet is ok, but river bet was too small, should have been more like $4.

      You are losing so much value here. Multi way with top 2 just bet all streets big for maximum value. Of course you would have died pretty badly here but most of the time you get value from worse A or worse 2p

      Agreed, I never really worried about losing the hand.

      I posted it here as I felt I'm missing value against his range & like to spend a little more time looking at hands that I should have played better, so that next time I don't make the same mistake.
