      PRE
      Std.

      FLOP
      Standard c-bet. He`s calling with Tx, 66-99, FD`s.

      TURN
      Sizing? His value-calling range is not that strong anymore, so I opted for a smaller value-bet.

      Min-raise on the turn usually means the nuts. Calling for a full-house is pretty standard. Generally my plan should be c/f the river, if I don`t hit?

      RIVER
      Only hand, that could play this way and I beat is exactly TcAs.

      Hey dienaszaglis,

      Preflop and flop are fine.

      I like your turn bet. Villain often doesn't like that card, but sometimes loves it. (Unless he specifically has AT or Ax floats where he might call larger). You extract value from the weak hands in his range and allow yourself to still call a raise with your boat-draw pretty often.

      River play is fine. As you correctly point out, you are basically drawing on the turn seeing as villain usually has a flush. When you miss your draw, check/folding is fine. Well played I think :D
