      I think my flop raise was bad.
      should I check on the river?

      Flop: Try not to raise here, his bet is pretty close to half pot. I think a raise will often isolate you vs better hands

      Turn: This is quite a bad card too, it coordinates the board further and improves AQ/Q9s/JT/KT/TT. Many of his turn leading range contains either Qd or Ad as well, and those hands now pick up straight outs.

      Should we check though? I think villain's range is still kind of wide so I would bet 65% pot here for some thinnish value.

      River: Assuming I did call Flop and bet Turn, I think river is kind of close. Think about villain's PF range. He is a 55 VPIP fish, and these fishes defend blinds super loosely. I think SB could potentially have all KX hands in his range. Thus, I think it is possible to bet the River for value, maybe half pot or slightly under half pot.
