      SB posts SB 0.5 BB, BB posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.5 BB) Hero has T:spade: Q:club:

      fold, fold, Hero raises to 3 BB, BTN calls 3 BB, fold, fold

      Flop: (7.5 BB, 2 players) 2:spade: T:diamond: 5:heart:
      Hero bets 4 BB, BTN calls 4 BB

      Turn: (15.5 BB, 2 players) K:diamond:
      Hero bets 7.74 BB, BTN raises to 21 BB, Hero calls 13.26 BB

      River: (57.5 BB, 2 players) A:heart:
      Hero checks, BTN bets 40 BB, Hero calls 40 BB

      Hero shows T:spade: Q:club: (One Pair, Tens) (Pre 61%, Flop 90%, Turn 100%)
      BTN shows 9:heart: 8:heart: (High Card, Ace) (Pre 39%, Flop 10%, Turn 0%)
      Hero wins 131.5 BB

      He raises flop 17%, turn no info.

      I would usually check call turn, check call river, but then my hand would be face up, so I wanted to take different line.

      When he raises me, I think he represents only set, and I dont think he would do it with Kx, maybe KTs. My bet size was also only 1/2 and the line looks like bluff (because I would continue bluffing on scare card), so I thought he is bluffing, maybe with fd, or OESD.
      Also I think he wouldnt bet one pair Ax on river so large but check behind or smaller bet size, because i could easily have straight, or set (I would always call with sets vs raise).

      So I am not sure if this move was too optimisitic?

      He reps 22/55/kt/tt so thats quite a lot of hands. Over here the turn call is way too optimistic when we are at the bottom of our range. You need a specific read to make such a loose calldown and i dont think you have those infirmation available.
