      My thoughts on flop were that if I bet he isn`t gonna pay me off with anything I have beat. So plan was to bet or reraise his bet on turn, which got lost among greedy thoughts to earn few bucks more. So would the initial line be ok?

      I'd just c-bet the flop, I doubt a 17/11 is calling your 3-bet without some kind of pocket pair or AK and people still call the c-bet with a pair on paired boards, as it's so unlikely to have hit you. Then I'd check back the turn since everything but Kx would likely fold at that point and bet the river if checked to.

      As played turn is fine since you checked back the flop even tho it's odd he made it so big.

      As played on the river it's a pretty tough spot, 17/11/2.8 usually aren't into the habit of bombing all streets with air when you check back the flop in a 3-bet pot and there is no way he's valuebetting two streets with worse than AA either really. I think I'd fold, I just don't think he's doing that with worse ever and stuff like AK should be in his range he doesn't have to 4-bet them preflop in those positions.

      Hope it helps.
