      Villain is a 18/14/2,5AF/171 hands. Only good hands he could have, which we have beat are TT and QQ, so I decided to just check/call the turn and bet the river small for thin value.

      Hey Adsegfhijk,

      Flop 3bet is fine.

      Flop cbet is fine. I'd make it a little bigger when you actually have something. It's ok to be unbalanced with sizing in this spot at these stakes.

      On the turn I'd mainly just barrel again for value. There are slightly more hands villain can call with than you listed. AJ/KJs, 77-QQ, flush-draws. A small proportion of the time I might check depending on opponent but would usually check-raise this texture and shove river.

      Your line is ok, but I think you've potentially missed value here.
