      I don't cbet because he might go for c/r on this dry flop.

      On T we have mediocre hand which is not good enough for raising.

      R bet seems super strong but I'm not putting him on 75, 63, 74 and other small combos. So either AJ, KJ or some backdoor flush. Still bad call since we don't expect him to bet so strong with JT or weaker.
      Does anything change if we're holding AJ here?

      Preflop raising is good.

      On the flop I prefer cbetting here.
      There are better hands that would fold - Kx/Ax.

      As played, calling the turn is good.

      On the river I would rather fold against a pot size bet here. Usually this is not a bluff and I doubt that we have the best hand here 1 out of 3 times.
      If we had AJ I would rather fold here as well, although it would be closer.
