      flop turn seems standard.

      On river, I scared AA and KQ. I didn't think of other possibility.

      River bet made sense on this spot? and what was best move on river?

      Hey,

      To me it seems like a spot where you should have a river shove very often... 135bb is a bit tougher to acheive a shove but I would still go for that. I never want JT, AJ, KK, AA to see a perceived scare card and sets stack off anyway.

      As played, I would call, main reason being your sizing. When you bet so small he might think he has value with AJ or folding equity with a hand like KJ that is not good enough to call river since you look like AQ quite a bit. You need info ofc which is why I'd stay to the idea: value hand, bet bigger and get it all in a cooler. Plus, you small sizings would possibly allow for a profitable call with KQ depending on your actual range here. You don't want that...

      My sizings would be 7-7.50 on flop, 14-15 on turn and shove river here.
