5-10 game 2k effective. Villain is a decent reg, likely profitable. I have seen him bluff before with air more than once. He is neither loose nor tight, nor particularly aggressive or passive.
Villain makes it 40 in mp, 2 callers, i call from bb w a3cc. Flop is aa9ss. No club. I chck. Is this a better lead? I checked because i didnt think my hand could stand a raise, and the game was fairly aggressive. It checks through. Turn is an offsuit q. I lead for 90, villain calls, rest fold. 340 in pot. River is 2s. I bet 160, villain makes it 400. And im lost.
In reconsidering the hand, i often will lead flop in spots like this, but didnt here. Maybe a lead makes more sense? I also think that given my read, this river is a chk call, rather than a bet fold or bet call. Thanks for your feedback.
