      On the flop my plan was to float, I imagine he would barrell most of his range plus I did have two back doors.

      Barrelled the turn as a semibluff.Should the bet on the turn have been bigger? If he's cbetting most of his range as i imagined, i think i'm gettin a decent amount of fold equity here. I don't put him on a king because he didn't barrel the turn seeing as there are a lot of draws he would want to protect against, he may have some pps and fds some combinations of straights.

      He could be folding some underpairs maybe some random Ax hands that didn't hit. Decided not to barrell the river considering the only hands that would stay in would have me beat anyway.

      on the flop i think our hand is a little too weak to call and i prefer raising as a bluff. i would call with the better gutshots like AQ.

      turn bet is certainly standard. our river pair is not good most of the time. good tthing about the T though is that we can rep AQ and maybe Q9s. it could be a spot where you just overbet or pot the river as a bluff or you can just give up.

      i would probably give up on a complete blank and always fire on flush cards.
