Villain has reraised me on another wet board before with 1 broadway, I think he can be doing this with a draw a lot. DOnt really like the way I play this was way too nitty. Putting him on a draw, should I have 4bet flop, or flatted on turn gone for a check-shove?

Think you played it fine. You would be 3betting the flop if you came over the top, and I agree with just calling. His value range has us pretty dominated.

I think he could have had tj or at but from the river guess he had flush, I block jj so if he has set most likely tt so I am leaning towards the turn check shove. Ty for note on 3bet.

I think you played this fine.

3Betting the flop would only value-own yourself. You might still get some action from some sticky flush draws, but I think you're more often just going to get 4Bet by hands that are crushing you.

I think turn and river play is fine. He's almost never bluffing the river as the way you played it looks a lot like a flush draw.
