      MP3 raises to $0.20, CO calls $0.20, BU folds, SB calls $0.15, Hero raises to $1.00, MP3 folds, CO calls $0.80, SB folds.

      If he would have checked behind and bet a blank river what should I have done?

      On the flop I would bet about $2+, it looks like you're trying to keep him in the hand with your bet, which is tempting with AA.

      There is a flush AND straight draw out there, so bet more. If he calls and bets a dangerous card, I would call and then c/f from there out. I might call a smaller river bet.

      His over bet looks like hes trying to scare you out, I would take that into consideration here too. I think he had T + overcard :diamond: or even a lower PP

      Raise more preflop since you have 2 flat callers + you're OOP.

      I am never calling that turn bet.

      After a blank river, I would likely still check it to him... folding to a large bet.

      I didnt notice the preflop play, good thing you did. I agree with above for it.

      Agreed, raise a bit more preflop. As played to compensate for that mistake and be able to shove a blank turn i'd c-bet a bit more on the flop too.

      On the turn everything got there and unless he feels like turning some Tx or unlikely KK/QQ made hands into bluffs, which most players won't, you beat virtually nothing.

      Hope it helps.
