      Hero shows a pair of aces(7d Ad).

      SB wins with two pairs, queens and nines(9h Qc).

      Preflop - standard blind steal
      Flop - after he called, I knew I was way ahead/way behind, so I checked behind on turn, to make him bet river with his weaker hands (worse Aces, Qx) and to control pot size. NH?

      Turn: I like checking behind. ppl love to fold in rush poker, so the flop calling range is going to be strong. You might not even be ahead at this stage, and if you are villian will prob fold to another bet.

      River: Fold. You are only ahead of some sort of OOP float. Idealy you check down here and he has Qx or TT.
