      BTN: 140.8 BB (VPIP: 20.00, PFR: 10.00, 3Bet Preflop: 0.00, Hands: 10)
      SB: 170 BB (VPIP: 23.73, PFR: 16.95, 3Bet Preflop: 7.69, Hands: 62)
      Hero (BB): 161.2 BB

      CO: 122.6 BB

      SB posts SB 0.4 BB, Hero posts BB 1 BB

      Pre Flop: (pot: 1.4 BB) Hero has 6:diamond: A:heart:

      fold, fold, fold, fold, SB raises to 3 BB, Hero raises to 10 BB, SB calls 7 BB

      Flop: (20 BB, 2 players) T:club: 4:club: K:heart:
      SB checks, Hero bets 12.8 BB, SB calls 12.8 BB

      Turn: (45.6 BB, 2 players) A:diamond:
      SB checks, Hero checks

      River: (45.6 BB, 2 players) 2:spade:
      SB bets 22 BB, Hero calls 22 BB

      OK so standard situation here. Anyways im still learning blinds def and usually avoid playing weak aces. Once i get called preflop here, should i cbet? This flop just fit so much of his calling range. Only hands he's folding are 22-99 pocket pairs probably. Mistake on cbetting aside, what do you think about rest of the hand? I checked back the Ace for pot control, and since i had showdown value I hoped he checks the river.

      you completely missed and the board isn't actually bad for villain, so this is a flop check.
      turn seems close, check is fine but i prefer a small bet/fold because there's some value and river play is going to suck if he bets, people aren't going to exploit us with light check/raises. river is whatever, you "must" call, but of course he can have a lot of better hands here.

      I prefer to check-fold OTF. Board is not the best.
      Turn is a breeze. Could go for a bet (and I completely agree with Tomaloc about the light check-raises) just to avoid a difficult decision OTR.
      As played, calling the river is pretty fine imo. You could be beaten, but you're getting a good price with TP.

      If you're not used to these situations you can also flat pre you know =)
      Flop you're betting too much, it's more of a check but if you bet make it half pot.
      River his sizing is value heavy, I don't see regs bluff stabing rivers in 3bet pots at NL5 anyway so it's possible to fold. He should know you have SDV and shouldn't expect you to fold it easily.
