      opp stats in 234 hands: 28/9 (VPIP/PFR)

      Flop: Seemed like solid spot for re-raising, so I did it.

      Turn: checking was sign of weakness, so had to bet as turn card most likely didn't improve him.

      River: Got K there, so couldn't give up, and diamond flush was last think I'm waiting there.

      Was it played more or less ok?

      Flop: I think it's ok if you think he folds enough minbets. After a hand make a note with what hand he minbets here.

      Turn: I would be more likely to give up/check turn since it's usually a bad idea to bluff a loose player. As he called your raise preflop that means he will hold on on what he has. Although shooting a 2nd barrel is an option too.

      River: I think value bet is ok.

      It really depends on villains aggression after flop. I've seen people just cold calling best hands. After his river check it's certainly hard to put him anything better than some 2pair.

      I agree mostly. Make a note of what he does against a raise after he minbet, and don't bet that turn he's not folding. If you had A-high it'd be better, since then you beat most unpaired hands. As it is if he somehow has a draw you might not even beat that, which would force you to bluff again a blank river, which you don't want to do against a guy who is never folding any Qx.


      Hope it helps.
