      should i have bet the turn? that way i would make the pot a little too big for my hand?

      could i have folded that river bet? are there enough worse hands that could make a bet in that position?

      Lol, Im gg all in asap, makes no sense to 3bet, n then get scared to ship it in with ur flop n holdings. If u dont dare to ship such boards, what boards then u go all in? When u hit the j?? Then u should 3bet every other pp n hope to hit set. I really dont like the way u check the turn n bet on he river whem flush completes.

      pushing the turn is the way... fishes will pay u off with fd, overpairs and sometimes even with AQ+ often enough to make this move +ev...

      This. That's basically the worst card in the deck on the river since he boats up 99, and make both the 76 straight and all heart flushes. If you're going to call a bet on the worst river card ever against villain's betting range, you're clearly better off betting the blank turn card instead to get value out of his check/calling range which is going to be much weaker.

      One small concern tho, if MP2 is a tag it's possible that he sometimes does not 4-bet KK+ to keep BU in the pot, even if most of the time he'll end up raising your flop c-bet with those hands. Probably not that relevant here, but something to keep in mind.


      Hope it helps.
