      BU shows two pairs, aces and nines(Ah Ad).

      BU wins with two pairs, aces and nines(Ah Ad).

      No serious stats about opp.

      Flop: I believe excellent flop to cbet.

      Turn: Still fine, would have folded if he re-raised or shoved.

      River: Medium bet to get some value if leading and maybe to block any action from him if he doesn't know where he's standing and waiting for any sign of weakness from me.

      Result: awesome. :D Well, completely misplayed Aces, but whatever, my question is - did I played this right?

      Well played flop and turn.

      River: I would just check that river. Many times you will see them cold calling flush draws and overpairs like AK's. Even if they don't catch anything they will not call with anything that you beat. Furthermore you even may induce bluff bet from missed draws. So I would just check call in these positions. Sometimes even fold when villain goes overtop to get max value from you.

      Without reads just check/fold that club river, most villains won't bet on that card without having 77 beat. If they do it'll be with some gutshot they floated twice with, and there are enough of these hands to justify bluff-catching when he can also have quite a bunch of value hands to bet with.

      Hope it helps.
