      now take it easy i'm just starting to play cash games NL i played FL and S&G, and MTT

      is caling on flop ok,
      on turn imo i cant fold (top pair nice kicker and 2nuts flush draw) i dont it for pot control is that ok, or should i shove on turn??
      as played shoud i chek or bet on river???
      if I should bet on river is bet size ok, he had like 26$ left on river,
      first i was thinking to bet 18-20 couse i want to give me biger fold EQ if he had AK but i bet 15 couse i think he will pay me off with 99-kk and weaker A AT-AJ but he will fold if i bet 18$-20$ and i dont think that he will have AK in that spot often enough.
      my first thought was to bet 18$??

      vilain 100 hands
      24/16/2.43
      3bet 3.23
      Cbet flop 88,6%
      Cbet turn 66,4%
      Cbet river 0
      wtsd 31.58,

      but when this hand happens we had play like 70-80 hands so stats may be somewhere difrend

      I´d like raise flop instead of calling.
      He need to have there strong draw or overpair to continue with his hand and often he´d fold being deep and oop.
      Although floating is also ok, just he may often barrel turn
      Turn call is likely fine. Don´t really know if he´d bet/call turn with worse hands
      Being deep check back river is ok, although since you´re likely ahead valuebet is ok.

      Is size of river bet ok??? I bet it 15$, but first i think to bet 18$-20$ and call shove
      pot on river is 26$ he hand 26$ left i have 30$ left

      i put him on 55-77, 99-kk, AQ, AK, AJ, ATs,

      so imo only hand thats is beating me is AK there,..... so should I bet more like 20$ so he can fold AK or is better to bet less and let him call i think that optimal bet will be 18$ (max value and max fold eq couse is 2/3 of pot and 2/3 of his stack) but i dont know why i bet lower than that

      what i ur standard line in this spot(river) check or bet???

      i call flop, for pot control, u say raise flop..... how much should i raise there 11$ and fold shove?

      First of all, I wouldn't call a 3-bet from this player pre-flop. He was likely to have JJ+, AQ+, and you could easily find yourself dominated.

      Post-flop, I believe, he could've played any of the above hands as he did (with the exception of AA, perhaps), and you were ahead (~60%) on the river. With his WTSD a value bet around 1/2 pot looks reasonable.

      A value bet, mind you, it doesn't make much sense trying to make him fold AK.

      Since he only has potsize left to call I don´t think he´d fold 20$ for AK
      So if you valuebet river it only comes to that if he´d call with worse AX hands or lower pp-s and the less you bet the more likely he is going to call your river bet.
      I would raise flop to 9$, that is enough to fold his Ax hands and if he calls then I´d try to check it down.
      If I don´t know the player I´d check behind river, since a lot of times you´re valuedowning yourself aganst AK. If I´d bet then 10-13$ to give him good odds with worse hands
