Looks to me like you're folding out all his bluffs and turning your own hand into a bluff, because you're never getting called by worse.
Flop is std vs anyone, turn could easily be a fold vs some players, impossible to say w/o stats.
Just realize that when he bets the turn again, you're behind almost 100% of his value range, especially with how dry the flop was, so if you're calling the turn it's because you believe that he's bluffing often enough for it to be profitable.
When you lead the river, you're never getting called by worse because:
-He was pure bluffing, in which case you prevent him from bluffing and lose all the value inherent to bluff-catching.
-He was betting for value, in which case you're always behind and will always get called by better
-He was semi-bluffing and got there, in which case you're toast anyway.
Try to think about that hand and understand what I'm saying, because leading that river is the worst possible play you could've made, it's just atrociously bad.
EDIT: lol @ "standard", hahaha.
Pretty nice post, thanks.
