Villain is 17/14 AG 35% (1.2k hands). We’ve played together for a while (1.2k). He must’ve noticed I’m calling OOP relatively tight.

Villain has MP RFI 14%, I expect it to be something like 22+, AJ+, KQ+ and all suited broadways.

To be honest I’ve got distracted and I’m not particularly happy with my flop line. Closer look shows that villain has 68% flop cbet IP and 89% turn cbet (30% raise and 40% call vs donk). I expect him to bet here with majority of his hands (22+,Kx, flush draws).

I made a small raise, so he could bet/call with 77+, Kx and flush draws.

Usually I’m ahead, it makes sense to value bet against AA, Kx, flushdraws. At this point I expect to get raise by all of his sets.

Obviously, its the worst possible river. Though, I think I’m still ahead of his range (AA, AK and flushes). As played, would you bet this river for value?
