      Think i played this almost right. Maybe i should have bet the flop a bit bigger and the turn more like 1.05 to defend against flush draw. On the river i put him on AQ.

      It's fine obviously. The main reason you want to bet slightly more on all streets is to make sure you can easily get all the money in by the river. Here you end up still having about a potsized bet to shove on the river, and since it looks strong, some villain could end up talking themselves into folding a marginal Qx hand. However nobody will fold Qx on the turn at these stakes, so if you make it so that you end up shoving only 1/2 or 3/5 on the river, people are more likely to cry pot odds and go broke anyway.

      Hope it helps.
