      Hi, so I decided it's about time to start analyzing my hands, so here's the first hand.

      I wonder if I should have checked river too. How should I play this against big stack? Probably would c/f or b/f against big stack? But against shortie I just didn't see my self folding after turn check. Also I didn't put him all in so he would not be too scared and see a weakness in my bet. Was it right?

      The converted hand:

      I'd 3bet preflop, we only have a few hands on MP3 and even tho he seems kinda tight, this is still a 3bet by default for me.

      As played on the turn against a halfstack loose player i'm bet/calling, i don't think we can fold for a potsize bet left so i'm even tempted to just shove that turn since chances are he shows up with tons of Ax hands in that spot that he won't fold, especially those with a diamond in them.

      As played on the river i'd probably bet a bit less to make sure i don't fold out Ax hands, and when he shoves we still can't fold.

      If he was a big stack we'd probably be bet/folding that turn by default.

      Hope it helps.
