      On flop I bet for BDFD
      On turn A hit with weak kicker, should I c/c?

      On river, I tried to bluff out AK,AQ.

      How should I do?

      Flop bet looks fine we can bluff bet later streets on Broadway and clubs

      Turn - I prefer a check raise all in here. I think he's betting majority of whatever he calls on the flop, a tonne of draws Broadway and Ax. When we bet we isolate against only the stronger draws and made hands and usually can only get maximum 2 streets of value so I prefer checking turn and betting river if he checks back.

      River - betting to bluff out top pair in a 3betpot is suicidal. You could bet here against weaker Ax(I don't think he has any in his range) or middle pairs like Jx KK QQ or you could check call against his missed draws. I very much prefer check call because his range consist of more draws than worse Ax and middle pairs
