      villian was 28/24 over 56 hands, no stats for 3bet pots

      I was unsure was the best play was on the river.

      I didnt know whether to bet and maybe get hero called off AJ QQ etc because he might think I had some busted draws.

      Or to check and let him bet his busted draws as I figured he would have previously raised straights/sets on the flop for protection.

      I like checking this flop vs an aggro/tough player. This board just smacks the caller's range and we are crushed if he raises. Jj KQ TT 99 JT T9 all crush our AA. I would cc and call down on non straight cards.

      Given that he did not raise flop or turn i just think he has no sets most of the time and flushdraws and AQ missed so this is an easy checkcall.

      I think he played it badly.
