      Hand that is typical of how I've been running. I'm pot controlling the turn and giving him the chance to bet missed draws and worse 2-pair hands on the river. 9x, 8x. He might also take this like with flopped set/straight Kx hands. Maybe I should just be folding the river?

      Bet turn for value $1.6.
      Checking doesn't achieve anything. He's very unlikely to checkraise-bluff, so we can comfortably fold to a checkraise.

      In case he check-calls the turn I'd put in another half potbet on the river (and again fold if he checkraises).
