    Villain is a loose player but haven’t seen him get out of line.

    Flop
    I’m not sure whether leading is good here, but I decided to do it at that moment.
    It seems OK but check/calling could be better since we have good backdoor potential.

    Turn
    I have to continue with the aggression.
    I can check/raise but I also don’t wanna see villain checking back

    River
    I’m not sure whether I should barrel again here.
    I don’t see him having a straight although I block all the pairs from the board.
    I could also check to let him bluff but I’m not sure he is likely to do it.

    I tend to not lead in this spot, i might be misremembering material from mastermind, but i think it has been said before that having a leading range heads up OOP is not important. It is more important to have a leading range multiway OOP. I tend to simplify this spot and check 100% of range.

    I like to continue betting here. Maybe check to protect the upper portion of range and have an easy CR to end hand and realize equity?

    I am unsure of proper river play here. If you are betting, I’m not sure what your value targets are. You have pretty good straight blockers and a flush draw blocker. Check call would be my guess?

    Flop i would check call. This is not the type of hand to lead out with. Its anyway not a board to have a very high lead % on. I generally tend to check most of my range on these more disconnected board and have more of a leading range when the board is extremely good for my range/bad for opponents range or when the board is more connected.
    As played turn you can go either way bet or check raise. In a way the turn is somewhat medium strong for you and slightly better for your opponent IP, which is an argument for checking. On the other hand your do pick up equity and you have decent river distribution when you bet. Its also not that likely your opponent will bet this card given removals.

    River I like a check to induce a bluff from missed FDs and missed low SDs. imo its very hard to get value given your exact holding and the runout of the board. Betting small (1/4) or something might also be a good action.
