      After he called my 3-bet on flop i was just WTF? Was ready to go broke there straightforward and now the A comes out. Well, i got pretty much scared from that, cause in that moment i thought about him holding AJ. But with that he is going broke on the F IMO. Still i figured out that i want a cheap showdown now. :f_biggrin: As a matter of fact, this could be done also to not fold out the fishes weak Jx hands, so maybe the check on the T isn't that bad. With the same consideration i bet so little on the river, to hope a J would call. Just got over a bit heavier tilt about 3 days ago and now i'm just a bit more inconvinient about every hand i play. Struggling to get my confidence back :)

      yeah, once things go south a lot of times it is hard to get your confident back.
      It helps if you play less tables and maybe also for a change nl 10.
      I think SB generally has there Jx hand and likely he would call your river bet, so you played it well
      I would likely check back turn since I think I get called down Jx that often and I can always bet myself on the river for value even if I don´t hit my set
