      Villain is 54/9/44WTS over 35 hands.


      Is just checking back here alright? My reasoning was that he will probably fold his busted draws anyways and that he could have a better jack. Should I make a small bet on the river? Also is my turn bet too small?

      Since his pretty fishy and the board pretty drawy you probably should bet more on the turn. On the river you could think about value bet, he would probably call you with a worse J, maybe some other pairs if he puts you on a busted draw. He also has high WTSD value even tho its only 50 hands he's probably a station so i'd bet small like around 1/2 pot and maybe he would call with any pair.

      I´d played the same way
      You can´t really bet river for value since he would also c/c down with Jx hand and I would bet the same amount on the turn because I can´t be sure if I´m ahead or not, so don´t really need to bet too big and valudown yourself. Standard turn bet is around 7$
