      I was wondering if I have a raising range on flop and I guess I don't, is that an issue?

      Turn I don't think I should bet unless I was planning to shove river. Now that I look at it I should have done that, as played I guess he will sometimes call me river with TT or something like that and I will feel stupid, specially since my bet river is kinda weird cause I win versus air anyways but might be autovaluebetting myself against such hands.

      Hi,

      I think you don't need a raising range on this flop but you can definitely construct one. It's a matter of style imo.

      I think you can double float super profitable, he looks like will barrel Ax often so you get implied odds on that as well, 5 is a very disguised out as well. I like flatting twice and deciding river. You have stacks to play for on river to shove vs his checks (notice AFq drop from flop/turn to river) so it should be a good spot to reach with this type of hand.

      On the turn I agree with you. You don't make him fold midpairs now unless you bet river as well but now I ask: Does betting river make sense if one bet doesn't make him fold midpairs?

      Nope, as played turn I should check back river. But would you rather go for the "bet turn bet river" or just chk it down?

      Usuaully I would go bet/bet. I don't have that much showdown value, I make him fold air anyway that can hit a better pair, I'm not expecting a c/r here almost ever and I can make him fold many middle pairs better than mine on the river.
