This is pretty terrible.
On the river you have to jam. The pot is already more than your stack and you need to maximize value. I would have also made a really small suspciious bet on the turn.
It’s not like you’ve made a huge error in this hand. The problem is this hand shows your flawed thinking. Like many amateur players you are probably desperate to get paid with a monster and so excited you got a big hand, that you are focusing too much on getting paid as opposed to getting maximum value, which is what really matters.
In general, if you flop a monster, you have to aim to get all-in by the river one way or another and if you don’t get all-in by that point, you have misplayed the hand. You can’t and won’t get paid 100% of the time, because villains won’t have a good enough hand everytime, but don’t let them fear of them folding short-change you. At this buy-in, believe me, even if effective stacks had been 15,000 i would have been all-in by river one way or another.

Thanks a lot.. I see what I did wrong there.. I should have made like a 1200ish kind of a bet on the turn.. and jammed the river then for maximum value.. Got it!!
