      I bet 3 streets for value. On the River, I was betting vs Qx or GS which caught an Ace on e Turn. Are my bet-sizings okay?

      Hi.

      Flop and Turn bet sizes are kind of large but I'm fine with it, when we have TPTK. On the River it's really dependent on how loose the opponent is. If we knew he was a huge calling station I would just bet 2$ as he would never fold QX even vs a larger bet.

      If I thought he was tighter postflop and looser preflop, I think he would have way more QX than AX hands (he could show up with Q9 Q8 as well), so half pot makes more sense to maximize value vs his entire range of QX and AX.

      If he was tighter preflop I would just bet closer to pot on the River. I think he always calls here with AJ and AT and QJ. He may/may not call KQ

      Thanks.
