Love the value bet on the turn. I understand the river is where people forgo the most value but what are we expecting to get value from on the river? That's why I'd have checked back to showdown.
Agreed pre should have been a 3 bet.
On the river, I WAS NOT betting for value. It's highly unlikely that he would call with worse (remember, he seems to stay away from big pots).
If he had 2pair+, I'm nearly 100% sure he leads or c/r my turn bet, so I'm left with beating missed draws (my river action is irrelevant then), relying on about 40% eq vs his made hands, or bluffing out his weaker holding that beat mine.
I can't do this vs a thinking player b/c I'm repping a narrow range that's filled with air, but vs this guy, I thought is was the right play at the time. Still not sure about it though.
