    Hi Taxed,

    Play is perfect imo. Now those who attend my live trainings or watch my vids will know I am a strong proponent of NOT slow playing big flops, it usually costs us money. In this case however, I think you have to do it to maximize value. You have the board crushed, and his range is pretty largely weighted to 99-KK type hands. If you c-bet (as the preflop 3-bettor would be expected to do) he will fold some of that, and give you 1 street of value with the rest, not likely to get 2 streets with this line. (obv with reads that can change, no reads are given though). By checking back the flop and flatting his turn lead, you make it look like you might not like the ace so much (make your range look like a pocket pair) increasing the chance you get a 2nd streat of value on the river (which you did), AND give him 2 chances to hit his 2 out 2nd best full house that gets you doubled up.

    River value bet was good, I actually thought it was a bit high as a good player will not pay this much off with QQ, but you got paid.
