      I think my c-bet on the flop was to small. But im questioning wether my play on the river was good play or bad play? Villan did use his entire time bank to make the call though. My HUD currently isnt coming up in the hand replayerso i carnt provid stats. I can try latter if you require them.

      duno why you called flop c-raise. but river bluff seems fine on kind of scary board since opp. bet turn weak and check river.

      I had intention of semi bluffing a dimond turn card, i felt he only had 1 pair so would check a dimod turn card. I guess if that was my intention i should of jammed the turn? After he bet though i felt calling was a stonger line. Abit spewy though maybe.

      when you get c/r on that board, it is mostly for value and if they do that for value they don´t really fold to your 3-bet on the flop
      So for that reason 3-bet flop before scary cards come on the turn
      River bet is fine. he should call you down with worse hands since he checked himself to you
