      I think pre/flop/turn are played well, on the river I thought about not betting since he would play his FD exactly like that but then I thought I still have a value bet against his weaker kings and maybe TT.

      Agree with that or any good reason for not betting the river or a different betsizing?
      Just to make sure, that was a bet with the intension to fold a ch/r

      Hey Jazzy29,

      There is an additional problem with the river card. Not only are you sometimes beat, but it's also way tougher for villain to call down with worse. TT is likely not calling 3 barrels anyway, the river club just makes that even less likely.

      I think checking back river is fine here. If you did bet I'd make it like 1/3rd pot.
