Hey guys,

This is the first hand history I've shared on RIO so bear with me if I make a mistake in uploading it.

This is one of the biggest hands in terms of BBs I've played in a while. I figured I'd post the hand then run through my thought processes on each street then see what you think about how I played the hand.

Preflop I make my standard UTG open to 3.5bb, he re-raises and I 4 bet to 33bbs. I chose this number because it was 3x so any thoughts on sizes here would be much appreciated.

Flop comes and I bet 33%* (Edited percentage typo*) because I figure there's a lot of AK,QK and QQ here in his range. KK might still be in his range too, I'm not sure if 5 betting with KK is good here given how deep we are and how seldom people 4 bet in 2NL? There is a flush draw possible but I would assume it would be with AKs and KQs most often?

Turn is a Q and I'm now behind anything I was looking to get value from and I'm behind most of his 4 bet calling range. I check and turn my AA into a bluff catcher.

River completes the flush but I assuming he's playing AKs KQs but KQ is more likely as I hold two of the 4 aces to make his AK. I check and he jams for the remaining 104BBs in my stack. I was really torn on this decision. On the one hand I just listed every hand that I can put in his range and everything except the one hand of AhKh has me crushed. On the other hand because I checked twice anything he still may hold that's a bluff would have to jam? (AQs AJs KJs JJ and TT maybe?¿?¿)

I think about it for a few seconds and decided that given how he 3 bet from the button, I checked to him twice and it was only 104BBs to win 295BBs I was ahead of enough of his range if he had any bluffs.

He turns over Ah5h and I understand the 3 bet preflop be I can't understand calling the 4 bet or calling a 33%* (Edited percentage typo*) pot on the flop with middle pair in a 4 bet pot if there's no flush draw for you on the flop.

Your thoughts are much appreciated
