      dude was 11/11/100 after like 30 hands (so i just assumed he was pretty tight)
      looking back at it i think a fold on the turn could of been possible, i wasn't really sure what to do. I really just can't put him on anything here, other then quads / boat. He isn't calling p/f with A6/A4s, i don't even put suited connectors in his calling button range like 67/57
      any thoughts?

      I prefer betting the turn myself, but as played why are you donking small on the river? value betting doesn't make sence since no worser hands will call, and I guess you didn't bet to induce a bluff since you folded.
      Please expalin your think process.

      I guess 33+.
      Maybe high cards, cause he could think that your small bet was weak.

      So you beat 55, 77 and bluffs. I guess you can find a call with more than 1:3. He might bluff because he thinks your small bet is weak.

      I rather c/c to increase his bluff range and control the size of the pot.

      Or should we c/f? Judges?

      when you check turn you play check/call turn , check/call river.Don't make silly moves like you did.

      true i did play this hand terribly, i bet weak on the river so he woulden't raise more with a hand that has me beat like a pocket pair, and so that he calls with 77/4A or some random ace highs.

      Either way i played this pretty hobbile ;Z

      I would bet again turn for value. Don´t expect to get raised that often and I think he would call again with worse hands
      I´d c/c river to give him chance to bluff with worse hands. Also i don´t want to b/c or b/f my hand and I`d rather go to showdown

      I would personally also bet again on the turn. as played i would c/f the river.
