      On the flop, i decided to go for a ch/r, because i don`t think that he will bet/fold TT+ and i might get some value from AK/AQ or smth. like that. Is it better just to bet the flop and shove the turn?

      As played, i think that on the river i have an easy shove for value?

      I think betting flop is the std line but checkraising sometimes is also good. This is a board where we can expect villain to bluff when checksd too really often and the board is kind of ugly and could coordinate further which would be really bad so it may make more sense to try playing for stacks right away.

      As playdd i think turn bet river push is fine. I think we have the best hand most of the time still. Given starting positions and bet/raise sizes preflop i think he has few suited speculative hands like89s or J:hT and mostly his range is limited to pocketpairs.
