      Hey Urmo1,

      SB open is standard.

      Not a good board to cbet, but it really depends on villain's Ftcbet imo. If he has a high fold to cbet I'd just cbet anyway and expect to still have reasonable equity vs his range that flat calls.

      Turn - I like the check call. Villan would often bet any pair/gutshot on the flop. He likely doesn't have anything unless he's just spiked a Q.

      River check is good. Check/raise might be ok, hoping to get paid off by a rivered Ace. You need to keep it small though. It could easily be a little on the thin side. Not because you are behind villain's range, but because he may not have many worse hands he's calling. He might even fold an Ace. I would probably tend towards flatting, but I don't think your play is necessarily incorrect.

      Vs re-raise I guess you have to fold. I think most of villains worse 2 pair combos or A4/A6/A8 are betting the flop. Usually he is on some epic slowplay unless he specifically has AQ too.
