      Hello BigAl123456,

      Not against such a passive opponent, we are planning to take his whole stack and therefore, we have to play Bet/Bet/Bet line, since I don't expect him to that often bet the turn himself. Therefore, nice hand!

      Best regards.

      Yer I didnt think he would bet, but say he has like J10s or something along those lines and hits a J on the river would he be more likely to call a bet. I dont like slowplaying, but I think the only card I'm scared of is a 5 since theres no flush possibilities.

      Edit: I think the only thing is if he is playing 10s or Js realy badley we miss out on value.

      So let him fold the hand. There are still a lot more hands, from we get more value by betting in. Starting from 6x, PP, maybe even just A high. Maybe some draws, like A3 or whatsoever. Therefore I don't really like the Checking line and get him a free card which could easily destroy our set.
