      Hello Oly0909,

      He could easily try to block-bet there with some flushdraw as well or maybe even have a smaller PP. Although I'd say your line is totally fine as well. One option would be to raise the turn but once again he will have hard time calling with a lot worse there, therefore Calling should be fine as well. But I'd just shove vs his stack on river.

      Best regards.

      On turn I was thinking he's on draw, PP or full house if he slowplayed set on flop. Since he checked river I'm sure he's not on FH, draws missed as well, so I wanted him to make crying call with PP, and I doubt he can do it if I shove. That's why my bet is so small. You still think it's wrong?

      I guess he may still have like Ax which is willing to Call our shove there anyways but meanwhile there aren't that many PPs which are capable of calling in our small bet. Therefore I guess I'd just go for maximum value and hope him to have the Ace or even make some hero Call with other hands. Although your reason is fine as well if you really considered him having such a hand more often. Me is just the guy who often times goes for maximum value rather than the small one and yes if I'd go for small value there then I'd bet something like $2.
