      PF: 3-bet to get value from worse high cards, I'm also doing relatively OK against most pairs.

      At this point, I expect my opponent to have high cards, pairs or some type or possibly some suited connectors.

      F: Hit TPTK so I bet a 60% to get value from high pairs, I expect most Ks to raise here for protection, possibly some near nut flush draws too.

      T: I get top two-pair, I bet about 60% again to get value from pairs and some flush draws.

      R: Scared that if I check I'll be faced with a big bet and unsure what to do, I choose to block bet around 1/5 pot which I guess gets thin value from pair type hands.

      i think river is a check/fold.. i don't see any worse hands that will call you here. most hands you beat will probably just check back this river.

      pre flop - raising for value against worse broadways is a good plan

      flop and turn - betting for value is good but i dont think he would raise Kx for protection, most likely he just calls with it if he raises usually its 2p or completed flush

      river - worst card ever. our hand turned worthless as any heart has us beat. if he has any pair hes not betting it here. i think only the flush is betting so we can fold if he bets. when we bet we turn our hand into a bluff since no worse is calling. i think the best move here is to check/fold since no worse is calling and no flushes are folding.
