      I think you played it fine. No reason to think someone has you beat on the turn when the T hits since they'd usually lead out on the flop, but someone can have improved to a draw. This is also why I call the minbet on the river - because he can easily be bluffing with a busted draw often enough for the call to be +EV.

      Bet sizings are fine
