Villain: 143 hands, reg aggressive tag, 22/18/6, AF=8

Did I miss one betting round on turn or on river?

Pre: standard

Flop: standard

Turn: raising: I probably has best hand, and would get a call from Ax, checking: he is aggressive, he called A-hi flop he has something or bluf but nothing major when not raising

River: raising small, no idea what he has or what to do. Calling is most logical thing to do though - for me that is.

Personally I wouldn't try to induce bluffs from him unless he has a smallish wtsd%. Else I just bet 3 streets for value here.

I wasn't really trying to induce bluffs, just thinking he is not strong enough to call 3 streets. My plan shattered on river, where he made a very annoying bet. His WTS=2/18

The flop is so dry that I'd sometimes actually check back in position against half-decent players, as you'll rarely get three streets from worse if you come out firing. If you check back, then hands like TT-88 will pay you off on later streets. As played, a pot-control line of bet-check-bet is also fine. Here the villain bets out on the river, and he'll do this with worse aces and underpairs, as well as random hands that sucked out a set, two pairs, or a straight. Calling is the only good option.
There's nothing really wrong with your line at all. If villain was more stationy, then bet-bet-bet would be best. But putting money in the pot on two streets against a 22/18 is about the best you can hope for with one pair. Nice hand.

Bracelet Winner
