      I think the slowplay is ok here. The A gives him more chances to hit the flop and the river gives some more chances for him. I just thought that maybe i should have made the overbet on the river even bigger. Say 5$. Maybe also some advice on the play on earlier streets?

      Hi,


      I'd just bet all the way really unless I have a reason not to. While it's possible that he stabs at the pot on that board after we check (seemingly to check/fold), this won't make up for the time he simply tries to get to showdown with whatever random pair he has in my opinion. If he has a big hand obviously this is going to go bet/raise one way or another so it's irrelevant mostly.

      As played on the turn I'd bet, we can't get two streets of value out of worse than Ax anyway so we might as well bet while diamond draws can still call.

      As played on the river I'd either bet 1/2 or check/raise, because it really does look like he has nothing at all unless he rivered two pairs / a straight. If he has a strong enough hand to call an overbet he'll bet it himself and possibly talk himself into calling a check/raise, otherwise the overbet will just scare away everything else, even stuff that might have tried to valuebet thinnish like two pairs just because it looks so damn strong. If he has nothing, he's not calling a bet but he might bluff at the 4-straight board, tho it's somewhat unlikely otherwise he'd have jumped at the chance to bet the flop.


      Hope it helps.
