Take my advice with a grain of salt as I havent played online seriously in years and pretty much out of the poker game, but like keeping my mind sharp for when I play the Parx tournies 4x a year.
I think the bit about x/r'ing turn being nutted is probably the most important part here. I've never thought about it but I don't think I really x/c flop x/r turn very often without the goods, meaning I either need to find some x/r bluffs on turns or make sure I'm x/r'ing flops a large % with my value hands (and then mixing in some bluffs on flop as well).

Eh idk with 3 hearts on board I'm not sure I have all that many hands worse than bad trips that want to b/c river. But I definitely was incredibly surprised to see he had me beat after he flatted lol. To be fair, he literally had the exact next best hand compared to mine on that board, and I wouldn't have been too happy calling a river raise with my hand, so I think the flat's alright.

Calling a raise would suck, shoving to maybe fold out small flushes because LOL Blockers might be better.

And ya, back in the day c/r Turn use to get folds soooo often, have to be pretty deep to do it though.

Hey sorry Dan about the Andrew mistype, that's why you shouldn't IM with two people while you're trying to write posts on the internets.

I know your mental game is solid but I don't see why you're thinking about these types of things in the middle of a session, doesn't seem productive.
