      I decided to downplay this hand, I think it was a good idea.
      Was getting more value possible somehow?

      Hello,

      Basically we can get most value if we play bet/bet/bet.
      Without information that villain is super aggro and bluff happy, I would just bet for value on three streets.
      If we check we give him the chance to check back, so we will lose value, plus if we bet ourselves we can control the bet sizes.

      Best,
      Plamen
