      I don`t like how i played this hand. I thought that i could ch/c turn to get some value from his floats, but i have no idea how to play the river.

      Hi Achilles,

      I think that your plan on flop and turn is fine especially given that turn card.

      However, when you do go for ck/call on the turn you should have a plan on the river. I think that on most rivers we can call but the Q is one of the worst cards for our hand since Qx is a good part of his range plus one of the few draws got there in TJ so unless we expect him to float super light on the flop and bet everything on turn/river folding is fine.

      Also, preflop I don't think we need to 3-bet this hand and we can also just call especially since this hand will get us into a lot of dominated spots since we can expect CO to defend wider.
