Pre Flop- Standard stuff

Flop - Not sure why i check call, in my head at the time was thinking my hand was strong enough to try and get tricky. Looking at it now there is no reason for me not to bet. Flush and straight draws on board could have bet and still got action from the draws mid pairs only seeing one over.

Turn - As above not sure why i check call. Having seen him bet the turn think he looks strong enough i could check raise? If i had bet flop i could have bet turn and left a shoveable bet on the river. Could definantly still have led out

River - horrible card, completes a couple of unlikely straight draws but the flush comes in, a decent size of his range now, after the first two streets think check call now is optimal, once i lead out and am shoved my crying call is virtually never good.

Great example of how to play aces horribly.
