      While playing I wanted to slowplay and go for bigger bets on T and R.
      Seeing the hand now that's very bad... FD and some GS. Also could get more value from Qx since he probably won't fold it immediately.

      When he bets T normal size he looks strong. Just calling is the best I think since we don't represent only Ax when calling but much wider range.

      R bet looks super vbet. We don't beat any Ax but also FD came (which is not that likely since he showed aggression on the T). But also some 2 pair Q9, Q7. We don't beat anything other than missed SD...super stupid call. :f_frown:

      Would you bet 45c on the flop? And then bet again on the T and c behind R?

      Hi Yax,

      Preflop: looks fine

      Postflop: Looks like another fancy play syndrome hand here :)

      We should cbet the flop for value/protection and go from there.

      AS played calling turn and river is fine because we may have induced villain to try and bluff or semibluff with our check back. However, if villain is passive over that sample we should look at folding that river because I doubt we beat much then and I doubt he bluffs at all.
