      I like your flop play. Cbetting can still get you value but checking will induce bluffs more imo.

      On the river I don't like betting... If you do bet, I think you should minbet, not more. When you check/call OOP you don't look like having air ever so when you bet river after turn checks through, you put your hand face up as Tx, QQ, KK, weak Ax. People don't bluff raise so you can argue you induce raises, not against a relatively standard sizing (this time you made it small but not small enough imo).

      If you minbet some things can happen:
      - You induce a raise from a weaker hand (minbet is followed by a call if the sizing is not that big when opp raises).
      - You make your opponent silly by having to fold to a minbet and can put him on tilt because of this.
      - You get value which you wouldn't have got because 'it's just a minbet, I can call my QJ just to see what he has'.
