      Hello!

      Was my turn play unnecessary? Should i play check there and check/call the river?

      As played, You need to call this as you only need to win once in three time. I will probably ship it by myself making him pay with worse A. But checking can induce his bluff on busted draws

      Bet > check call ott imo.

      Yes, it is here too nitty.
      But I do not like the two bets. We have TP, but we are oop and I am sure, we don't have 3 streets value. Even AT beats us..
      Please coment sb more, but my play: F c/c (cause if we bet flop and he bets turn a than river - the call river wouldn't be easy - and it is dry board. What would we do if would be a little more drawy?), T bet and R bet or blufcatching according to board.

      Disagree. Villain was 26/21 in 41 hands with a weird stack size. It is good enough to know that he is most likely a recreational player. Vs this type of player in NL5, AJ definitely has value for 3 streets on this board.

      As the preflop aggressor, flop bet was a must. Villain could call your bet, it doesn't mean that he would be willing to bet by himself. I prefer a smaller size like 1/2 pot, so that we can also easily pickup value from JJ, QQ, Tx, and some weak draws like KQ, KJ.

      As played, turn bet was also necessary because 4s didn't change anything here. Villain was not likely to fold any stronger draws, and would almost never fold Ax here but he might check behind with these hands.

      OTR, we can then decide either lead by ourselves or check call for bluffs.

      Don't be afraid of being beat. Getting value is more important!
