This is a hand that I struggled with mainly due to the villains stats:
on a 202 hand sample VPIP:16 PFR:11 AF:1.3 3bet:0.0

any comments or suggestions are welcomed

Thanks,

Think it's a really clear check on the turn.

Apart from protecting from diamonds there really isn't much reason to bet.

A lot of his range that calls on the flop will be top pair heavy. However, his betting range on the turn when we check to him may include stuff like QJ no diamond or other 'protection' bets, so I feel we should at least call turn if he bets into us.

I don't expect a 16/11 to be too aggressive bluffing on rivers, so we can then comfortably fold to a river bet after we x/call turn.

In summary, this is not a board you'll be getting 3 streets from worse on, and I think the turn is the best spot to exercise a bit of pot control.

Of course, if he checks back turn, it's very likely we have the best hand and we can pretty easily bet/fold river for value.

This is the critique I was expecting, and I have to agree with the breakdown, sometimes its hard to accept the board is bad when holding AA, and while I knew I might be behind after beting on the turn, didn't feel like it when I was donking money in to the pot.

Thanks birday,
