      Did I play this hand correctly? I 3bet preflop because the SB had tried the steal a few times recently. Then the flop was a standard conti-bet, was the bet size right? And was I right to check behind on the turn? On the river I was a bit worried Villian had made the straight with KQ, which was well in his range, but I thought I was right to be calling?

      Preflop is fine since villain looks to be calling a lot.

      On the flop I usually check it back, we only have 3rd pair and there are a ton of hands that just won't fold on that board. Any two cards higher than 87 will pick up some piece and against bad players who play a lot of broadway cards, we're already 2-outing against a bunch of Ax/Jx hands.

      Turn check is fine, since the flop was close to begin with there is less and less value in betting.

      River is fine as well, there are quite a few two pair hands villain could have out there, and while him having 8x is always a possibility, I think it's worth the value shove against people that call too much, a category which this guy seem to fit nicely.

      Hope it helps.
