      He plays c/c flop I bet for value
      After his check on the turn I still think I'm ahead of his range and I bet for value and protection.

      The check on the river made me think he was calling me down with something like AK/AQ or a baby pair so I tried a thin value bet against those hands.
      His check/3xpot shove made me think of something like a J or AA/KK but:

      Does the thin value bet of 1/3 pot on the river lets me open to bluff shoves like this? If that's the case then I should call in that spot?

      His shove doesn't even look like a desperate bluff? I mean with the stone cold nuts he would want some safe value. I still think that my tiny bets made him just smell weakness and snap shove.

      Bad size bet on the flop?

      PS: It's Rush poker

      I think you´re very often beat
      Don´t really expect him to c/rai there very often Ax or smt, he rather has Jx or AA
      I´d also check back river, doubt AX is going to call down and you rather induce there bluff than light calldown
