      could I think about check/folding river as there is almost nothing I beat?
      to the bet sizing: now when I see it after session, I can tell it is small - preflop raise to 1.25, no need to be fancy.
      on this flop 3/4 bet is ok, on the turn 2/3 and rest on the river.
      I have to work on this...

      edit: I thought about this hand and I think that check/fold river is the best play. What I did was a spew.

      Agreed. Villain doesn't look like he'll be prone to shove busted spades on you so check/calling isn't appealing at all, and a lot of the other hands that called down so far beat you on that river except low Ax hands. If you're position he can show up there and call the river jam with every single Ax hand it's still okay to shove, otherwise you're better of check/folding.

      Hope it helps.
