      Hand converted with online PokerStrategy.com hand converter:

      Play hand

      $0.25/$0.5 No-Limit Hold'em (6 handed)

      Known players:
      CO (Hero):

      Preflop: Hero is CO with A, J.
      2 folds, Hero raises to $1.25, BU calls $1.25, SB folds, BB calls $0.75.

      Flop: ($4) 3, A, 6 (3 players)
      BB checks, Hero bets $3.00, BU calls $3.00, BB calls $3.00.

      Turn: ($13) 9 (3 players)

      Villain's stats:
      Hands: 62
      VPIP/PFR: 31/25
      AF: 3.0
      3bet: 12.0

      I protected my hand on the flop and on the turn.
      On the river I thought, that Villain wouldn't call 2 streets
      w/ flush draw and decided to value bet against Ax hands.
      Is ch/c a better play?

      Why whould he be calling with flushdraws?What is the point to call the flop and fold to a medium bet size on the turn with a flushdraw there?He is never folding flushdraw on the turn if he called the flop unless you bet something super big like close to pot size.If you think he is holding Ax hands bet lower on the river or check/call since the flushdraw got there.He will 100% call you with Ax if you bet something like 10$ but he will fold to this bet all the time.

      I think Ax would not call you down that big bet, so i also like betting smaller like 10-14$
