      I was initally pleased with my play in this hand but the more i think about it the worse i think i played.

      My reason for playing the way i did is that the villain didn't fold to c-bets so i checked the flop with the intention to raise the turn. Which is what happened but did i just turn my hand into a bluff when it had some showdown value??

      You should nearly always c-bet a paired board, even if he called your c-bet he probably wouldnt lead the turn without a K.

      check behind is not terrible, since you could induce bluffs from worse hands that might have folded to your c-bet
      I think your turn raise is cool, although standard line is call turn and then call river blank, hoping that player is bluffing
      But since you can easily fold if he 3-bets and if you´re behind then you only have 2 outs, then at this case I like turn raise for free showdown,s ince he can easily b/c with A high flushdraw or some other hand, like 99 with 9 high flushdraw, thinking you´re bluffing there
