2/5, 1000 effective. Villain is older, very aggressive, recreation player.
A person who isn't going to be the villain in this hand opens from early postion to 20 four people call, including villain, and it gets to me on the button and I call with a black, offsuit QJ flop comes out T98, all diamonds. Checks around to villain who leads out for almost pot (75). I feel like I am just forced to call her with the nut straight because of hiw scary the board is, but that might have been a mistake.
The turn is an off-suit ace, and he bets 130 into about 230. Again, sort of just feel like I am forced to call, as if just hard to see how I get called by worse.
River pairs the nine and get bets our 250. I make a sound like I got punched. It's very hard to see how I am good here, but the pot is like 740, 250 to call. I realize I essentially just have a bluff catcher, but I wonder if he takes this like with the ace of times, etc. I called. Thoughts? I think I played the river the worst, but I am interested in hearing about how I screwed up earlier streets as well.
