      Hello nktns,

      Flop: I'd definitely bet here for value and likely also for protection. I don't see any good reason why we should slowplay our hand.

      As played
      Turn: Definitely bet it at least here.
      River: As we played that passively then we can't really fold it here, we kinda induced him to bet it like that here. But of course his line is kinda strong, Check/Call turn and then bet pot river, against known opponents we might have a possibility to fold but not in this case. Next time don't be that passive, and we could find out more about his hand. :) What did he have then?

      Best regards.

      Yeah, likely, which is trying to get maximum value on river, since he didn't get any from playing it that passively. Worth taking note on that. :)
