      villian fold to 3b lot and multibarrel. So my plan was to c/c flop and ch/r turn.
      On the turn could call drw, Kx, KQ I think should shove turn. So now I see river is not the best card, to shove can I find fold here?
      And how to play river best?

      preflop: Just 3-Bet to balance your 3-Bets with trash!
      As played:
      Flop: Raise to balance your bluff raises on dry boards. If he has Kx he'd most likely call you down.
      Turn: your raise size is way to small on that board. Make it 7,50-8$ so you can ship river easily without overpotting.
      River: Ugly river card. I guess I blockbet/fold 4,50$ as I don't want to play c/c or c/f. (Villain can have KQ, JT quite easily.)

      What did he have?

      Best regards,

      He had great JhTh
      Yeah, I agree 3b is fine, but sometimes I just call, sometimes 3b
      Here he could fold a lot so I tried o make some value postflop, next time will chkr flop.

      this board is getting quite dangerous for aces, but your overall game plan was fine
      If he barrels a lot then c/c flop and c/r turn is fine
      I think I´d c/c river or b/f it. he is not really shoving there AK or missed draws often enough that you can b/c with aces
      Also you have option keep the pot small and just call him down
