      SB showed A A and won $60.54 ($30.54 net)

      CO unknown

      What do you think about my postflop play?
      On the flop I stabbed because of the missed cbet and because CO would have stabbed with a Q too... so I thought I would get the pot easily with this bet.
      On the Turn I have a +FD equity so I could checkback easily ooor push. I thought at the moment of this hand that this is a highly +EV move. I thought I have enough FE against his second pairs/weaker Qx hands. He would have overpair rarely (also now I noted that he has a lower skipcb/f in 3bpots... which raises the probability of them), but all in all I thought I would have enought equity + FE against his whole range.

      Given that both players checked I don't mind our flop stab at all. Your bet size can be a bit smaller but overall the bet itself is fine.

      How's our image like? What type of history do we have here with him?

      Given the stack sizes and pot size a smaller bet doesn't make much sense. But what can ck/call the flop that would not cbet? I think that villains cbet smaller pairs anyway + fds and since his skipcbet/call is not that large I would be worried about a slowplay here (without other info) and just check back. I doubt that we have the FE we need versus his flop ck/calling range.
