      22/17 1.2k hands

      very high fold to cbet and low wtsd, 64% and 21%, very fit and fold when not having inititiave
      fairly aggressive postflop

      I thought this was a good spot to slowplay, coz he's going to float very narrow and not calldown at all.

      My river raise size was to get value from mid to high flushes. I thought about shoving, but decided against it with the nut flush blocker. Without this I think shoving would have been fine?

      I like the Flop check. On the Turn it's unclear whether betting or checking Turn again is better. Anyway I don't think non AX Hands are going to pay you off more than 1 bet so checking should be fine.

      You should c/c Turn and on the River this is dependent on how good the villain is at hand reading. Villain is repping 5X/clubs IMO and I think it's hard for him to lay down those hands if he's bad or mediocre so you could raise larger.

      Vs a better opponent you could raise the size you did make. I think you strongly rep AA/KK with this line (who ever bluffs like that?)
