    Hi Blacknight9769 !

    I wouldn't have played it differently.
    Your raise pre-flop, c-bet on the flop and bet on the turn when you hit top pair top kicker are pretty standard and there's nothing much else you could do about it. Your opponent call on the flop can be legit, but on the turn he is paying too much for his gut shot. when he has around 10% of chances to hit it.
    Finally, i liked that you checked behind on the river.

    Best Luck at the Tables!

      What type of strategy one should use if there are minimum 2-3 players on 6 max table who would call your 3 bet/reraise/ even bugs preflop just to see the flop. remaining players being decent.

      I do bet very big if I see few are playing very loose but too big bet preflop will be called by better hands when there are decent players as well on same table,right?
